Quiz 1: Logical Functions I: IF

Q1. How many arguments are expected by the IF function?

  • One
  • Two
  • Three
  • It depends on the variables.

Q2. Using the IF function to determine the maximum of 2 cells A1 and B1 the coding could look like:

Q3. A formula that would give the answer TRUE if the cells X1, Y1, and Z1 are in ascending order (no ties allowed) and FALSE if not might look like:

  • =AND(X1<Y1,X1<Z1)
  • =AND(X1<Y1,Y1<Z1)
  • =AND(X1<Z1,Y1<Z1)
  • =OR(X1<Y1,Y1<Z1,X1<Z1)

Quiz 2: Week 2 Final Assignment

Q1. We would like to make a courtesy phone call to customers who may not be aware of our Express delivery option. Some customers who consider their orders to be urgent, do choose an express mode of delivery, while others do not. We would also like more senior members of staff to make these calls if these orders are generating a lot of revenue for our company. In this regard, there are two proposals to evaluate which orders are the most valuable for our company.

To answer the s in this quiz, download the attached worksheet and follow the instructions in each .

We want to figure out which orders are considered urgent by our customers. This is to be judged by whether they specify that their orders are High priority or Critical priority, or if they choose Express Air for delivery.

Populate column X so that it shows TRUE if they classify their order as High or Critical or if they have chosen Express Air as the mode of shipment. At the top of the column, count the number of cases for column X. Report this number here.

If the customer has not been called yet, the manager should not call them. Populate column AJ: Manager to Call with an appropriate IF statement.

Q2. We want to figure out which customers who consider their orders to be urgent, actually choose an urgent method of delivery.

Populate column Y so that it shows TRUE if they classify their order as High or Critical AND they have chosen Express Air as the mode of shipment. At the top of the column, count the number of cases for column Y. Report this number here.

If the customer has not been called yet, the manager should not call them. Populate column AJ: Manager to Call with an appropriate IF statement.

Q3. We want to figure out which orders are considered Medium priority or higher.

Populate column Z so that it shows TRUE if they classify their order as Medium or High or Critical. At the top of the column, count the number of cases for column Z. Report this number here.

If the customer has not been called yet, the manager should not call them. Populate column AJ: Manager to Call with an appropriate IF statement.

Q4. Which customers are not choosing Express Air for their delivery?

Populate column AA so that it shows TRUE if they do not choose Express Air as the mode of shipment. Hint: The function NOT(condition) gives the opposite result, which may be useful here. At the top of the column, count the number of cases for column AA. Report this number here.

If the customer has not been called yet, the manager should not call them. Populate column AJ: Manager to Call with an appropriate IF statement.

Q5. Given your answers to s 3 and 4, we want to call the customers who have priorities that are Medium or higher (Medium, High or Critical) but do not choose Express Air for delivery.

Populate column AB so that it shows “Call” if BOTH column Z AND AA are TRUE or “Do Not Call” otherwise. At the top of the column, count the number of customers we are going to call. Report this number here.

If the customer has not been called yet, the manager should not call them. Populate column AJ: Manager to Call with an appropriate IF statement.

Q6. We will be calling those customers whose entry in column AB is “Call” to talk to them about our express delivery option. We would like to monitor the number of calls and the duration of the calls for research.

We do not want to call customers who have told us they are not interested, so this column will have the default value of “interest potential“, but this can be switched to “no interest” if the customer indicates that they are not interested.

Recalling previous lessons on data validation and dropdown lists, allow the entries in column AC to come from a dropdown list containing either “interest potential” or “no interest“. Using an IF statement, populate the column with “interest potential” if the entry in column AB is “Call”. The cell should be blank otherwise.

Change the sixth entry that says “interest potential” to “no interest” (count down six ignoring blanks and replace the formula in that cell). How many calls were made to that customer for this order?

If the customer has not been called yet, the manager should not call them. Populate column AJ: Manager to Call with an appropriate IF statement.

Q7. We also want to calculate the average time spent on calls per order number, but we don’t want an error message to appear if the call has not been made, but rather say “not called yet”.

Populate column AF so that it shows, if they were a client to be called, the average duration of the calls made to them. If an error results from this calculation because there have been no calls yet made, report “not called yet”. If they were not a customer to call, leave the cell blank.

At the top of the column, calculate the average of this column and report the result here, to 2 decimal places. Use #.## number format.

If the customer has not been called yet, the manager should not call them. Populate column AJ: Manager to Call with an appropriate IF statement.

Q8. We would like to see which of our orders are generating the most revenue. If an order has an Order Total of more than $1,000, we will call this a “Star” order.

Populate column AG: Star Order Proposal A with the value “Star” if the Order Total is more than $1,000. If it is not, the cell should simply remain blank. How many “Star” orders are there?

If the customer has not been called yet, the manager should not call them. Populate column AJ: Manager to Call with an appropriate IF statement.

Q9. A consultant asks us to consider Star Order Proposal B which classifies orders according to “5 Star” (more than $1,000), “4 Star” (more than $500, up to $1000) and simply blank ($500 or below).

Populate column AH with the values specified above. How many “4 Star” orders are there?

If the customer has not been called yet, the manager should not call them. Populate column AJ: Manager to Call with an appropriate IF statement.

Q10. We would like the Deputy Sales Manager to make the courtesy call if the order is a “Star” order, and we have flagged the order as a call that needs to be made.

If they are a “customer to call” and they are a “Star” order (according to Proposal A), then we want the Deputy Sales Manager to call them.

Populate column AI: Deputy Manager to Call with an appropriate IF statement. How many calls will the Deputy Sales Manager have to make?

If the customer has not been called yet, the manager should not call them. Populate column AJ: Manager to Call with an appropriate IF statement.

Q11. We would like the Sales Manager to make a different courtesy call if the average call time is greater than 7 minutes, and the order is a “4 Star” or “5 Star” order, but only if we have flagged the order as a call that needs to be made.

If the Average Call Time is more than 7 minutes, and the order is a “4 Star” or “5 Star” order (according to Proposal B), then we want the Sales Manager to call them. If the customer has not been called yet, the manager should not call them. Populate column AJ: Manager to Call with an appropriate IF statement. (You may need to incorporate a ‘does not equal’ for “not called yet”.)

How many calls does the Sales Manager have to make?

If the customer has not been called yet, the manager should not call them. Populate column AJ: Manager to Call with an appropriate IF statement.

Excel Skills for Business: Intermediate II Week 3 Quiz Answers

Quiz 1: Introduction to Lookups: CHOOSE

Q1. Download and open the workbook:

Your friend has entered the following formula in cell C6 and wishes to copy it down. =CHOOSE([@[Loc Code]],K6,K7,K8,K9,K10). Can you predict what will happen?

  • This won’t work. The friend made a mistake. The function should look like this: =CHOOSE([@[Loc Code]],K6:K10)
  • This will work just fine.
  • This will work fine for the first one but won’t produce the desired outcome for the lower values in the table.

Q2. In the video we mention that the CHOOSE function is not necessarily the best choice when we have a large lookup table. Can you think of why this is the case?

  • The CHOOSE function is limited to only 10 items for the list specified.
  • It will take a long time to type out a long list since we can only separate the values by commas.
  • The CHOOSE function can handle 254 values for the list specified.

Q3. Which of the options below is an accurate definition of the CHOOSE function?

  • The CHOOSE function is pointed to an index and a list of values. CHOOSE then returns the value that corresponds to the position in that list. The first item in the list is counted as 0.
  • The CHOOSE function is pointed to an index and a list of values. CHOOSE then returns the value that corresponds to the position in that list. The first item in the list is counted as 1.

Q4. It is important to understand the syntax of the CHOOSE function. What is the first argument that the CHOOSE function is asking for?

  • An index number – this is the numeric value that provides the position within the list.
  • A logical test – this is to check whether the numeric value is where CHOOSE is meant to look for it.
  • The location code – this is the number that CHOOSE is looking for first.

Quiz 2: Approximate Matches: Range VLOOKUP

Q1. When you are doing a VLOOKUP, what is the lookup value?

  • This is the value that we don’t know. We want Excel to return this value from the lookup table.
  • This is the value we do know. We want Excel to lookup this value from the table.

Q2. When you are doing a VLOOKUP, what is the col_index_num?

  • This has to be sometimes specified by the column (e.g. F) for very large datasets.
  • This is the number you specify when you want Excel to lookup a value that is not in the first column.
  • This is the number of the column that contains the value you want Excel to return from the lookup table.

Q3. With a range VLOOKUP you can look up a value that falls within a given range and return a corresponding value.

  • True
  • False

Q4. Which characteristics about the data set that the table_array argument points to are important to keep in mind when creating a range VLOOKUP?

  • The lookup data set that the table_array points to should be listed in alphabetical order, the range should be referred to with relative references, and headings should be included.
  • The lookup data set that the table_array points to should be listed from smallest to largest, the range should be referred to with absolute references, and headings should not be included.
  • The lookup data set that the table_array points to should be listed in alphabetical order, the range should be referred to with absolute references, headings should be included.
  • The lookup data set that the table_array points to should be listed from smallest to largest, the range should be referred to with relative references, and headings should not be included.

Quiz 3: Exact Matches: Exact Match VLOOKUP

Q1. Which of the statements below about the fourth argument, [range lookup] in the VLOOKUP syntax is correct?

  • This argument is optional, however, it has to be set to FALSE if you want to do an exact match lookup.
  • This argument is optional, however, it has to be set to FALSE if you want to do a range lookup.
  • This argument is not optional and has to be set to FALSE to do a range lookup.

Q2. Consider the following parameters:

This is the value we know: Table column with the heading Materials

This is our data set: Table with the name Classification

This is the column with the target value in it: Fourth from the left in the data set.

Which of the functions below was written correctly to successfully complete an exact match VLOOKUP?

  • =VLOOKUP([@Materials],Classification,4,FALSE)
  • =VLOOKUP([@Materials],”Classification”,4,FALSE)
  • =VLOOKUP([@Materials],Classification,4,0)
  • =VLOOKUP([@Materials],”Classification”,4,0)

Q3. In order to set a VLOOKUP to do an exact match, you have to complete the fourth argument by adding:

  • The number 1
  • The number 0
  • The word FALSE
  • The word TRUE

Q4. When is it appropriate to use an exact match VLOOKUP?

  • When you are using a horizontal table and you want the lookup value to exactly match the first row.
  • When the data is arranged in descending order and a range VLOOKUP is no longer appropriate.
  • When you are dealing with a lookup value with a unique identifier, such as bank account numbers, and you want to match to a vertical table.

Q1. Which of the following properties are true for the MATCH function?

  • The data has to be arranged in a specific order to use the MATCH types of less than or greater than.
  • The default match type (the MATCH function’s third argument) is exact match.
  • The MATCH function does not care if the lookup array is horizontal or vertical.
  • The MATCH function returns the value of a lookup value in the lookup array.
  • The MATCH function returns the position of a lookup value in the lookup array.

Q2. What are the required arguments of a MATCH function?

  • match_type
  • lookup_value
  • table_array
  • lookup_array

Q3. Is it necessary to highlight all of the column headings (this must correspond to your table array) when using the VLOOKUP and MATCH functions together?

  • Yes, it is necessary. You have to make sure that the VLOOKUP table array matches the MATCH lookup array.
  • No, it is unnecessary. Make sure to highlight the headings of the table in the table array of the VLOOKUP function and Excel will understand what you mean.
  • No, it is not necessary. You just need to make sure the lookup value is included in the VLOOKUP table array.

Q4. What is the purpose for the format of the reference (in bold)?

=VLOOKUP([@Item],parts,E$4,FALSE)

  • The reference is a relative reference, and we are using it so that we can drag the formula across to copy it.
  • The reference is an absolute reference, and we are using it so that the formula will always refer to this specific cell even when we copy it.
  • The reference is a mixed reference, and we are using it so that we can drag the formula down to copy it.

Quiz 1: Modelling Functions (SUMPRODUCT)

Q1. Which of the options below best describes how SUMPRODUCT works ?

  • SUMPRODUCT sums up the elements of multiple arrays and then calculates the product of the sums.
  • SUMPRODUCT finds the product of multipe arrays and then sums up the products.
  • SUMPRODUCT calculates the product of elements within an array and then sums up those products.

Q2. A colleague is unsure what order the arrays need to be entered in the SUMPRODUCT function. What is the best response to this?

  • It is important to consider the order of the arrays. If the arrays are not in the right order, an erroneous answer can be produced.
  • It is actually not necessary to use a particular order when placing the arguments in SUMPRODUCT.

Q3. How can SUMPRODUCT be used to add up values that meet certain criteria (perform a COUNTIF)?

  • It finds the product element wise of one times whether each element in the array met the condition (1 if it did and 0 if it didn’t) and then sums up the resulting products.
  • It can’t fully be understood how Excel does this as this is odd for the SUMPRODUCT function to do.

Click in D4 and record a relative reference macro called Calc that multiplies the value in the cell to the left by 0.73, press Enter, and then stop recording. Open the macro in the VBA editor. What is the second line of executable code?

  • Range(“C5”).Select
  • ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Range(“C5”).Select
  • Range(“C4”).Select
  • ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Range(“A1”).Select

Q13. Return to the spreadsheet and click in D5. Run the Calc macro. Which cell is now selected?

Calc macro from a button in the worksheet. Insert a shape in the worksheet and change the label

Q14. We would like to be able to run the Calc macro from a button in the worksheet. Insert a shape in the worksheet and change the label to Calc. To run the macro we right click on the shape and select Run.

  • True
  • False

Q15. Save your workbook but leave open. Create another blank workbook. Click in cell A1 and type 192 then press Enter (to go to cell A2). Run the macro Calc. What result is returned and why?

  • None of the above, you can’t run the macro as it is not in this workbook
  • 0
  • 140.16
  • #REF!

Q1. You are required to work on a spreadsheet for an Event Planning company who is hosting a Charity Fundraiser. Follow the instructions carefully and answer the s as you go. Note that some data is stored in tables and there are several named ranges already in the workbook. Feel free to apply your own named ranges where appropriate. Also, the Error checking rules should be set to the default.

Go to the Client Database Worksheet. This contains a list of all regular clients. We want to avoid introducing data entry errors so we will look at adding data validation.

Which data validation option would be best for First Name?

  • Text Length
  • List
  • Custom
  • Any Value

Q2. Which data validation option would be best for Client ID?

  • List
  • Decimal
  • Text Length
  • Whole Number

Q3. Using the lists in the Lookup Lists tab, add validation for the Organisation and Country Code so that only values that appear in the lists can be entered. Next Circle Invalid Data. Just looking at data in rows 7 to 27, how many red circles appear?

Correct the data by selecting the correct option from the list. For the Country Code, choose the closest one alphabetically.

Q4. Add data validation to prevent users entering a Start Date in the future. Which of the following is the correct formula?

  • =$E$7<=DATE()
  • =$E$7<=TODAY()
  • =<DATE()
  • =E7<=TODAY()

Q5. We want to identify all clients who started from 2017-01-01 onwards. In I7 enter a formula that will put the text “New” if the start date is the same or more recent than the date in N7 and otherwise leave the cell blank. How many new joiners are shown in O7?

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q6. We have decided to send a gift to clients who have shown long-term loyalty or attended a lot of events. Create a calculation in J7 that will put “Yes” in the column if the start year was before 2013 or if the events attended is 15 or over, otherwise leave blank. How many gifts are we going to need to send (see N16)?

Hint: use the YEAR function i.e. YEAR(E7)

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q7. We award a status based on how many events clients have attended. If they have attended fewer than 10 events they are given Bronze, 10-19 they get Silver, 20-29 is Gold and anything from 30 upwards is Platinum. Enter a formula in K7 to lookup the Client’s status using the lookup array in M10:N13. How many Gold members do we have (value in O12)?

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q8. We need to contact all the new members who live in Great Britain (GB). Add conditional formatting to make the whole row of the table yellow (or any colour of your choosing) where the Country is GB and the New Status is New (Hint: use a function that evaluates multiple criteria). In the Client ID column sort by colour to arrange the members we need to contact at the top of the list. What is the value of Check Digit 1 in N15?

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q9. You have now completed the required changes to the Client Database, click onto the Attendees worksheet, and follow the instructions to complete the calculations required.

A list of Client IDs for those clients attending has been entered in the table Attendees. To make this data easier to understand and work with, use an appropriate lookup function to lookup the First Name for each of the Clients attending. You should get one NA error. What Client ID caused the error? It turns out this client has unsubscribed and will not be attending, remove this record (be careful not to delete the seating plan data on the right).

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q10. Use an appropriate lookup function to lookup the Last Name for each of the Clients attending. Sort the data by Last Name (A-Z). Which Client ID is now first (in A7)?

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q11. Use appropriate lookup functions to lookup the Country and Status for each of the Clients attending. How many Bronze members are attending (shown in J10)?

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q12. The seating plan in I10:M64 has allocated seating areas by Country and Status. In the Seating Area column, use an appropriate lookup function to look up the correct seating area from the seating plan using the client’s Status and Country. How many people are currently being seated in area F (shown in M8)?

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q13. Well done. Now click into the Cost Overview sheet. There are a few errors that we will need to address and then we will look at different cost models.

You will notice quite a few errors. Start by clicking into D9. This is a very simple formula, so it’s probably not causing the error, it’s just trying to work with a cell that has an error in it. Use the Trace Error tool to find the cell that is causing the error. Each red arrowhead indicates a cell affected by the original error, how many are there?

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q14. Which cell did the error originate in?

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q15. Correct the error. What is the Total Cost (D9) now? Enter whole numbers only.

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q16. That has fixed most of the problems, but there is still a green triangle showing in cell D17, which suggests we may have another error. Click on D17 and identify what the problem is, if necessary correct it. What is the Total Cost (D9) now? Enter whole numbers only.

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q17. You suspect that changing the value in D6 will impact a lot of the calculations, but you want to find out how many. Click in D6 and Trace Dependents (just once). How many direct dependents does it have? (Count the blue arrowheads)

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q18. Clear the arrows, and now find out which cell is the direct precedent of D7 using Trace Precedents. What is the cell reference (do not include sheet name)? Remove arrows when done.

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q19. We are still quite far off our target of 200 guests and a bit worried that we might not achieve it. Change the value in D6 to 1 and then use Goal Seek to find out the minimum number of guests we need to not make a loss, i.e. get $0 profit. What is the minimum number of guests? Enter a whole number only (no decimal places).

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q20. Change the value in D6 to 91 to see what profit we are currently making. We would like to see how our profit will be affected by changing our catering company. Use the Scenario Manager to create a scenario called Food2U using the cell D23 with its current value. Add two additional scenarios, one called Munchies with the value Munchies in D23 and another called Janelle’s with the value Janelle’s. Show the scenario for Munchies. What is the Profit in D12? Enter the number to 2 decimal places.

Q21. Create a Summary of all 3 Scenarios. Which caterer yields the highest profit?

  • Janelle’s
  • Food2U
  • Munchies

Q22. With 91 guests coming and Munchies as our caterer, our cost per guest is higher than the ticket price. Use the Solver tool to minimise the Cost/Guest by adjusting Guests (D6), Site Staff (B17) and Speakers (B31). Add constraints so that Site Staff cannot be less than 2, Speakers cannot be less than 1 and Guests cannot be more than 400. Save the scenario as Min Guest Cost and keep the solution. What is the new Cost/Guest? Enter the number to 2 decimal places.

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q23. We want to protect all the calculations in this worksheet, but we need users to be able to still edit cells D6 and D23. Before applying protection we should:

  • Unlock these cells
  • Unhide these cells
  • Lock these cells
  • Hide these cells

Q24. Having made provision for D6 and D23, how would we then protect the rest of the worksheet?

  • Review > Protect Workbook
  • Review > Protect Sheet
  • File > Info > Protect Workbook > Protect Workbook Structure
  • File > Info > Protect Workbook > Encrypt with Password

Q25. To make it easy for their users to switch between caterers you decide to create 3 macros to show the 3 different scenarios. These macros need to be relative references.

  • True
  • False

Q26. Record a macro called ShowFood2U (no shortcut key and store in workbook) that shows the scenario Food2U. (Don’t perform any other actions while recording.) Open the Macro in the VBA Editor. Which of the following is the line of code to show the Scenario?

  • Sheet.Scenario(“Food2U”).Show
  • Sheet.Show.Scenarios(“Food2U”)
  • ActiveSheet.Scenario.Show(“Food2U”)
  • ActiveSheet.Scenarios(“Food2U”).Show

Q27. Copy the whole macro (from Sub to End Sub) and Paste it underneath the End Sub. Change the name to ShowJanelles() and replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles. What is the total catering cost now (D28)? Just enter a whole number (no $ or decimal places).

Repeat this step to create a macro to show the Munchies scenario.

replace the text “Food2U” with “Janelle’s”. Go back to your worksheet and click the Macros button. You should see two macros there. Run the one called ShowJanelles.

Q28. You want to be able to run the macros using the buttons provided (to the right of the catering totals). To do so, after you unprotect the worksheet, you will need to:

  • Click Developer Tab > Macros > Options > Assign Macro
  • Right Click the Button > Assign Macro
  • Click File > Options > Macro Settings > Run Macro
  • Click Developer Tab > Insert > Button (Form Control)

Q29. To delete a macro we can: (select 2 options)

  • Right Click the Button > Delete
  • Developer Tab > Macros > Delete
  • Develop Tab > Macro Settings > Disable All Macros
  • Open the VBA Editor and delete the code

Q30 .To preserve the macros in this workbook I can save as what type of file? (select 2 options)

  • Excel Workbook (.xlsx)
  • Excel Template (.xltx)
  • Macro-Enabled Workbook (.xlsm)
  • Binary Workbook (.xlsb)
