Exercise Excel 2-2: Soccer Budget
|What you will do:
||create a spreadsheet -
a blank worksheet
The City Soccer League has created a budget for their season. You will
put their figures on a spreadsheet and create formulas for totals and to
show whether the league went over the budget.
- Data Entry: Use the handwritten notes in the illustration
above to create a spreadsheet. Fill in titles starting with row 1,
labels, and data in the same order. Leave a blank row above Expenses,
below Insurance, one above Income, and one below Sponsorships.
- Sort: Sort the Expenses rows in alphabetical order.
(Don't just sort the words. Sort rows.)
- Resize columns: Widen the columns as necessary to show words
in the categories.
- Formula: Create a formula in cell D7 (in the
first data row- Balls- in the column Over/Under Budget) to subtract the Actual
amount in column C from the Budget amount in column B. If the league
spent more than planned, the answer will be a negative number. Copy this
formula to the other cells in this column that are on rows with
categories or totals. (Hint: Copy down the whole column and then delete
- AutoSum: Use AutoSum to calculate Totals for Expenses and
Income in both the Budget and Actual columns.
- Numbers: Format the numbers on the sheet as Currency:
range B7:D14, range B16:D16, range B19:D20, range B22:D22. Decrease
Decimals twice. Note that the negative numbers now are in parentheses.
- Edit: To explain the new parentheses for negative values, put
parentheses around the word Over in the column label: (Over)/Under.
Shorten the text in cell B6 to Budget.
- Header: Create a header with your name and the date on the
left, the file name and sheet name in the center and Exercise Excel 2-2
on the right.

table to print centered horizontally on the page but not
vertically. No gridlines or headings.. Spell Check. Print

ink! Go back to Normal view and unselect the chart.
The chart size depends on the size of the window when you inserted it
