#### Quiz 2: Test your Skills: Named Ranges

Q1. A travel expenses template has been compiled for your company to make it easier for staff to record their expenses when travelling to branches in other countries. It has recently been updated and the named ranges have been damaged in the process so most of the formulas are returning an error. You need to correct the named ranges to fix the problem.

Have a look at the Travel Expense worksheet. Note there are quite a few errors. Start by addressing the problem of the missing exchange rates by naming the ranges. Go to the **Currency Rates** worksheet and use **Create from Selection** to name all the rates (**A4:B12**) using the labels in column **A**.

What value is now showing for the **Other Expenses** in **K6**?

*Don’t enter the currency symbol – please enter the number as ##.##*

Q2. While the calculation of Other Expenses is looking better it is still not correct. Open the Name Manager. There is a range called **Coffee** that is no longer used, so delete it. Now have a look at **Ex_Rate**, it only goes to row 14, which explains the incorrect calculation. Edit it to go from **L11:L21**. Click OK and close the Name Manager.

What is the corrected value for **Other Expenses** in **K6**?

*Don’t enter the currency symbol – please enter the number as ##.##*

Q3. Let’s fix Travel Costs next. Open the Name Manager, there is a named range called **Travel_Costs**, but this is the wrong name, change it to **TravelCosts** and click OK and close the Name Manager.

What is the corrected value for **Transportation Expense** in **K3**?

*Don’t enter the currency symbol – please enter the number as ##.##*

Q4. Next, Lodging Costs. Use any method you think suitable to give the name **Lodging_Costs** to range **F11:F21**. What is the corrected value for **Lodging Expense** in **K4**?

*Don’t enter the currency symbol – please enter the number as ##.##*

Q5. And now to fix meals, let’s be efficient and use **Create from Selection** to name all three ranges simultaneously. Select **G10:I21** and click **Create from Selection**. What is the corrected value for **Meal Expense** in **K5**?

*Don’t enter the currency symbol – please enter the number as ##.##*

Q6. Our **Travel Expense** worksheet is now looking good, but we would also like to complete a breakdown of expenses by region. Start by adding the following named ranges:

**E11:J14**– London**E15:J18**– Paris**E19:J21**– Mumbai

Now go to the **Summary By Region** worksheet and observe the calculated values for London. What was the total amount spent in London in Pounds (**C4**)?

*Don’t enter the currency symbol – please enter the number as ##.##*

Q7. Enter a formula in **C5** to add up the total amount spent in Paris (use the named range you have just created). Then do the same in **C6** for Mumbai.

What was the total amount spent in Paris in Euros (**C5**)?

*Don’t enter the currency symbol – please enter the number as ##.##*

Q8. In **D5** create a calculation to convert Euros to Dollars by multiplying the Euros spent (**C5**) by the exchange rate for Euro (which is named **EUR**). Perform a similar calculation to convert the Indian Rupees to Dollars.

What was the total USD spent in Mumbai?

*Don’t enter the currency symbol – please enter the number as ##.##*

Q9. Click in **D7** and use Autosum to get the total spent in USD. If we were to now name the range **D4:D6**, would the formula just created in **D7** automatically change to use the named range? You should not actually create this named range.

- Yes, it would change immediately.
- Yes, but only when the formula is next refreshed.
**No, but you could use the Apply Named Range to apply it.**- No, you would have to manually change the formula.

Q10. Click in **B9** (still in Summary By Region), and use the Paste Names tool to Paste all the named ranges into your workbook. What value is in **B23**?

Q1. Have a look at the first 3 worksheets, they contain student marks for 3 terms. Now go to the Final Marks worksheet and use 3D-Formulas to get Benjamin Abbot’s class test average for terms 1, 2 and 4. Copy the formula across to I4 and then down for the rest of the students. What was the Average Final Mark (as shown in cell M4)?

*Please enter the number with one decimal ##.#*

**Clustered Column pivot chart using the data in the second pivot table (if you have Excel for Mac select the data in A17:B20 and just create a regular chart). Add a linear trendline and display the R-squared value on the chart**

Q2. Note that you have a sheet called Marks Term 3 but it is not in the right position. Move this sheet to sit between the sheets Marks Term 2 and Marks Term 4. Check the Final Marks Sheet, what is the average Final Mark now?

Q7. Have a look at the worksheets Absences Term 1 through to Term 4, they contain a list of dates that students were absent. We need to create a summary showing a count of how many days each student was absent. Go to the Absence Report Sheet. Click in A4, and then use the Consolidate tool to consolidate the data on the other Absences sheets. The results look a bit odd, but that is because the count values have been formatted as dates. Change the formatting to General or Number. Sort the data by Total Absences. How many students were absent for more than 15 days?

Q8. Go to the Student Report worksheet. Some of the information still needs to be completed. Create a formula in D4 to return the Student’s full name, this should be First Name followed by a space and then Surname.

How many A’s did the Part Time Students get?

Q17. Change the pivot to show the values as a percentage of the column total. What percentage of Part Time students failed?

*Don’t enter the percentage symbol, please just enter the number as ##.## (2 decimal places).*

Q18. Mr Chang has observed that the students attending the college seem to be increasingly more able and more motivated. He would like to see if there is a pattern in the results based on enrolment date. Click in A17 and create another pivot table to show the average final mark by enrolment date. Add a filter field and change the filter to only show data for Mr Chang. Format the values to only show 2 decimal places. What was the Average mark for 2017?

*Please enter the number with two decimal places.*

Q19. Create a Clustered Column pivot chart using the data in the second pivot table (if you have Excel for Mac select the data in A17:B20 and just create a regular chart). Add a linear trendline and display the R-squared value on the chart. What is the R-squared value?

*Please enter the number as #.#### (4 decimal places).*

Q20. Have a look at the other trend line options and select the one that returns the best R-squared value. Forecast forward for 1 period. If the trend continues, students who enrol in 2018 are expected to get an average result closest to…
