#Excel Introductory Capstone – Collection 

#Exp19 Excel AppCapstone Intro Collection


Project Description:

You are the financial manager for Judi’s Art Gallery. One of your clients, Raymond Chancellor, has a large collection of limited edition signed art by James C. Christensen (1942-2017). Over the years, you have helped Raymond maintain a list of his collection, including the title of the art, medium, issue date, issue price, the price he paid, and current market values. Most of the art is sold out from the publisher, which increases the value of the art. Other art is still readily available or is available in limited quantities. You want to update the list so that he can properly insure his collection.

Click cell K9, and insert an IF   function that determines if the Issue Price is equal to the Current Value. If   the values are the same, display Same as Issue (using the cell reference K2); otherwise, display Increased in   Value (using   the cell reference K3). Copy the function from cell K9 to the range K10:K54.

Create a pie chart using the   ranges C2:C6 and E2:E6, and then move the chart to a new chart sheet named Current   Values. Move   the Current Values sheet to the right of the Purchase sheet.


Type Percentage of Total Current Value as the chart title and change   the font size to 18 pt. Choose Colorful Palette 3 for the chart colors. Add   this description for Alt Text: The pie chart shows each art type by percentage of   total current value. (include   the period).

Set a filter to display art that   equals Sold Out as the status.

  • Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

    We complete each paper from scratch, and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check our content for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments, but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism-detection systems, which are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

    We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness. Please note that it is possible for a writing company to guarantee an absence of plagiarism against open Internet sources and a number of certain databases, but there is no technology (except for turnitin.com itself) that could guarantee no plagiarism against all sources that are indexed by turnitin. If you want to be 100% sure of your paper’s originality, we suggest you check it using the WriteCheck service from turnitin.com and send us the report.

  • I received some comments from my teacher. Can you help me with them?

    Yes. You can have a free revision during 7 days after you’ve approved the paper. To apply for a free revision, please press the revision request button on your personal order page. You can also apply for another writer to make a revision of your paper, but in such a case, we can ask you for an additional 12 hours, as we might need some time to find another writer to work on your order.

    After the 7-day period, free revisions become unavailable, and we will be able to propose only the paid option of a minor or major revision of your paper. These options are mentioned on your personal order page.

  • How will I receive a completed paper?

    You will get the first version of your paper in a non-editable PDF format within the deadline. You are welcome to check it and inform us if any changes are needed. If everything is okay, and no amendments are necessary, you can approve the order and download the .doc file. If there are any issues you want to change, you can apply for a free revision and the writer will amend the paper according to your instructions. If there happen to be any problems with downloading your paper, please contact our support team.
  • Where do I upload files?

    When you submit your first order, you get a personal account where you can track all your orders, their statuses, your payments, and discounts. Among other options, you will have a possibility to communicate with your writer via a special messenger. You will be able to upload all information and additional materials on your paper using the “Files” tab on your personal page. Please consider uploading everything you find necessary for our writer to perform at the highest standard.
