Exercise Excel 4-2:

Theater Tickets: Delete & Repair with absolute reference

What you will do: insert and size an image
delete redundant data
repair formulas
format data groups

The worksheet on tickets sold needs to be cleaned up. There is a lot of repeated data that can be managed more efficiently.

Start with: Class disk, theater tickets3.xls (from previous exercise), tickets.gif from resource files

  1. Open the workbook theater tickets3.xls in the excel project3 folder of your Class disk.
  2. Insert image: Insert the image  tickets.gif from your resource files at the right of the Seating Capacity table, sized so that it is the same height as the table.
  3. Class disk Save as  theater tickets4.xls  to your Class disk in the excel project4 folder.
  4. Redundant data: Delete column D, price of the ticket. This data is also in the small table of ticket types. The formulas in the Total column will break - #REF!
  5. Repair the formulas: Rewrite the formula in E11 to multiply the number sold in D11 by the price per ticket in the Seating Capacity table. Use an absolute reference for the ticket price cell, C6. Similarly, correct the formulas for the next two cells.
    Recall that there is a pattern to the tickets, each performance has the same 3 types. Select E11:E13 and copy. Use Paste Special to copy the formulas to the remaining rows of tickets sold. [Skip the subtotals rows!] You should get the same values in the Total column as before.
  6. Format groups: Change the formatting of the subtotals for each play and the grand total at the bottom. Background: Blue; Font color: White
    Make the grand total row all bold and font size = 14.
  7. Header: Change the header to show Excel Project 4.
  8. Print Print.
  9. Class disk Save.
