In this project, you will manage charts to meet objectives 5.1 through 5.3 of the Excel MOS Associate exam. To complete the project, you will create charts 5.1, modify charts 5.2, and format charts 5.3. Note: This project was created for PC users since the MOS Exam is completed in the PC user environment.
Steps to Perform:
Start Excel. Download and open the file named Student_MOS19_XL_PROJ5_Charts.xlsx. Save the file as Last_First_MOS19_XL_PROJ5_Charts.
Edit the chart to include the 4th Quarter data series.
Change the Rows/Columns so that the Departments are the Legend entries.
Resize the chart to the range B14:G30, ensuring that the chart is just inside the cells’ borders.
Insert a title for the chart and enter Government Expenses.
Add Alt Text to the chart and enter the description, Chart shows a comparison of government expenses for the first through fourth quarters.
Insert a 3-D Pie Chart comparing the Department Totals using Departments as the legend. The chart title will display as Department Total.
Move the Department Total chart to a new sheet and rename the sheet Pie Chart.
Apply Chart Style 3, and then apply Colorful Palette 3.
On the Expenses worksheet use Quick Analysis to apply Data Bars to the range F4:F11. Note, Mac users, apply Solid Blue Data Bars to the range.
Ensure that the chart is not selected. Insert a Right Block Arrow shape pointing to the Capital Projects data for the 4th Quarter of the Government Expenses chart. Position the shape in row 18 and resize the shape so that the Height is 0.20 and the Width is 1.07.
On the Pie Chart sheet, insert a Text Box in the Department Total chart. Position the text box in the pie shape to the right of the 29% data label. In the text box, type Largest percent, apply Bold to the text, and then resize the Text Box to Height 0.30 and Width 1.2.
Change the Chart Layout to 1. Use the snipping tool to take a rectangular snip of the Pie Chart Area including the title. Copy and then paste the snip in cell I2 of the Expenses worksheet. Resize the snip so that the upper left corner sits just inside the cell borders of I2, Height 5.91 and Width 6.67.
