In this project, you will work with sales data from Top’t Corn, a popcorn company with an online
store, multiple food trucks, and two retail stores. You will begin by copying the sales data for
one of the retail stores from another workbook. Next, you will insert a new worksheet and enter
sales data for the four food truck locations, formatting the data, and calculating totals. You will
create a pie chart to represent the total units sold by location and a column chart to represent
sales by popcorn type. You will format the charts, and then set up the worksheet for printing.
Next, you help Top’t Corn calculate payments for a loan and decide whether or not the purchase
is a good idea. Working with the daily sales data for one of the brick-and-mortar stores, you will
apply conditional formatting to find the top 10 sales dates. Y ou will also calculate the sales for
each date, and the average, minimum, and maximum sales. You will use Goal Seek to find the
appropriate price to reach a higher daily average sales goal. You will use VLOOKUP to look up
sales data for a specific date. Finally, you will work with their online sales data to format it as an
Excel table and apply sorting and filtering. You will create a PivotTable and a PivotChart from a
copy of the online sales data to summarize the sales.
