Access 2016 Project: EX16_AC_CH02_GRADER_CAP_HW – Morris Arboretum

The Morris Arboretum tracks donors in Excel. They also use Excel to store a list of plants in stock. As donors contribute funds, they can elect to receive a plant gift from the Arboretum. The organization has grown and the files are too inefficient to handle in Excel. In the following project, you will import Excel files into an Access database. You will create a table to track donations, create relationships between the tables, and create some baseline queries.
Steps to Perform:
Step Instructions
1 Start Access. Open the downloaded Access file named exploring_a02_grader_h1.
2 Create a new table in Design view using the name Donations. Add the primary key field as DonationID with the Number Data Type and a field size of Long Integer. Add the following field names to the table: DonorID, PlantID, DonationDate, and DonationAmount (in that order).
3 Change the Data Type for the DonorID and PlantID fields to Number. Change the Data Type for the DonationDate field to Date/Time, and then change the Data Type for the DonationAmount field to Currency.
4 View the table in Datasheet view, save the table, and then add the following records to the Donations table:
DonationID   DonorID PlantID DonationDate     DonationAmount   1                 24         15           3/17/2018              120   2                 9          11           4/3/2018                  50   3                 14           9         4/19/2018               150   4                 3              4         4/12/2018              60   5             18             7            4/19/2018              50   6               14             11          3/12/2018              125
5 Sort the records in the Donations table by the DonationAmount field in descending order. Save and close the table.
6 Import the downloaded a02_grader_h1Plants.xlsx workbook as a new table in the current database. Using the wizard, specify that the first row contains column headings, set the PlantID field to be indexed with no duplicates, and set the PlantID field as the primary key. Import the table with the name Plants and do not save the import steps.
7 View the Plants table in Design view and change the field size for the PlantID field to Long Integer. Save the table. Click Yes in the dialog box indicating that some data may be lost. Close the table.
8 Begin establishing relationships in the database by adding the Donations, Donors, and Plants tables to the Relationships window. Close the Show Table dialog box. Create a one-to-many relationship between the DonorID field in the Donors table and the DonorID field in the Donations table, enforcing Referential Integrity. Select the option to cascade update the related fields.
9 Create a one-to-many relationship between the PlantID field in the Plants table and the PlantID field in the Donations table. Enforce Referential Integrity. Select the option to cascade update the related fields. Save and close the Relationships window.
10 Create a query using the Simple Query Wizard. From the Donations table, add the DonorID and DonationAmount fields (in that order). Ensure the query is a Detail query. Name the query Donations Over 100 and finish the wizard.
11 View the query in Design view, and then set the criteria for the DonationAmount field so that only donations greater than 100 are displayed.
12 Sort the query in ascending order by the DonationAmount field. Save the query. Run the query, and then close the query.
13 Create a new query in Design view. Add the Donations, Donors, and Plants tables to the query design window. Close the Show Table dialog box. Add the DonationDate field from the Donations table, the donor’s Lastname, Firstname, and Phone fields from the Donors table (in that order).
14 Add the DonationAmount field from the Donations table after the Phone field, and then add the PlantName field from the Plants table.
15 Sort the query in descending order by the date of the donation, and then by the last name of the donor in ascending order. Save the query with the name Plant Pickup List, and then run the query. Close the query.
16 Copy the Plant Pickup List query, and paste it using ENewsletter as the query name.
17 Open the ENewsletter query in Design view, and delete the DonationDate column. Add the ENewsletter field to the first column of the design grid and set it to sort in ascending order, so that the query sorts first by ENewsletter and then by LastName. Run, save, and close the query.
18 Close all database objects. Close the database and then exit Access. Submit the database as directed.

Access 2016 Project: EX16_AC_CH03_GRADER_CAP_HW – Northwind Traders

Northwind Traders, an international gourmet food distributor, hired a new CEO. She asked for your assistance in providing summaries of data that took place before she started with the company. To help her with her strategic planning, you will create queries to perform data analysis. Based on your meeting, you plan on creating four queries. One query will find orders with minor delays. Another query will summarize the cost impact of customer discounts. A third query will be used to help evaluate financing. The final query will calculate the total sales by country.
Steps to Perform:
Step Instructions
1 Start Access. Open the downloaded Access file named exploring_a03_Grader_h1.
2 Create a query using Query Design. From the Customers table, include the fields CompanyName, ContactName, ContactTitle, and Phone (in that order). From the Orders table, include the fields OrderID, OrderDate, and ShippedDate (in that order). Run the query and then examine the records. Save the query as Shipping Efficiency.
3 Add a calculated field named DaysToShip to calculate the number of days taken to fill each order. (Hint: the expression will include the OrderDate and ShippedDate fields; the results will not contain negative numbers.) Run the query and then examine the results. Save the query.
4 Add criteria to limit the query results to include any order that took more than 30 days to ship.
5 Add the Quantity field from the Order Details table and the ProductName field from the Products table to the query (in that order). Sort the query by ascending CompanyName.
6 Add the caption Days to Ship to the DaysToShip field. Switch to Datasheet view to view the final results. Save and close the query.
7 Create a query using Query Design and add the Orders, Order Details, Products, and Customers tables. Add the fields OrderID and OrderDate (in that order) from the Orders table. Set both fields’ Total rows to Group By.
8 Add a calculated field in the third column. Name the field ExtendedAmount. This field should multiply the quantity ordered (from the Order details table) by the unit price for that item (from the Products table). Format the calculated field as Currency and change the caption to Total Dollars. Change the Total row for the ExtendedAmount field to Sum.
9 Add a calculated field in the fourth column. Name the field DiscountAmount. The field should multiply the number of items ordered, the price per item, and the discount field(in that order). This will calculate the total discount for each order. Format the calculated field as Currency, and add a caption of Discount Amt. Change the Total row to Sum. Run the query. Save the query as Order Summary. Return to Design view.
10 Add criteria to the OrderDate field so only orders made between 1/1/2016 and 12/31/2016 are displayed. Change the Total row to Where. This expression will display only orders that were created in 2016. Run the query and view the results. Save and close the query.
11 Create a copy of the Order Summary query named Order Financing. Switch to Design view of the new query and remove the DiscountAmount field.
12 Add a new field using the Expression Builder named SamplePayment. Insert the Pmt function with the following parameters:
• Use .05/12 for the rate argument (5% interest, paid monthly)
• Use the number 12 for the num_periods argument (12 months)
• Use the calculated field ExtendedAmount for the present_value
• Use 0 for both future_value and type
13 Change the Total row to Expression for the SamplePayment field. Change the Format for the SamplePayment field to Currency. Run the query and verify the second order has a sample payment of $125.84. Note: it will display as a negative number. Save and close the query.
14 Create a copy of the Order Summary query named Order Summary by Country. Replace the OrderID field with the Country field in Design view of the new query.
15 Run the query and then examine the summary records; there should be 5 countries listed. Switch to Design view and change the sort order so that the country with the highest ExtendedAmount is first and the country with the lowest ExtendedAmount is last. Run the query and verify the results. Save and close the query.
16 Close all database objects. Close the database and then exit Access. Submit the database as directed.

Excel 2016 Project: EX16_XL_CH07_GRADER_CAP_HW – Apartment Complex 1.9

You own five apartment complexes. You created a dataset listing the apartment numbers, apartment complex names, number of bedrooms, rental price, whether the apartment is occupied or not, and the date the apartment was last remodeled. You want to insert some functions to perform calculations to help you decide which apartments need to be remodeled.  To focus on the apartments that need to be remodeled, you will use advanced filtering and database functions for your analysis. Finally, you are considering purchasing a sixth apartment complex. You will perform some financial calculations and analysis to help you decide if you will purchase the complex.
Steps to Perform:
Step Instructions
1 Open exploring_e07_grader_h1_Apartment.xlsx and save it as exploring_e07_grader_h1_Apartment_LastFirst.
2 In cell G8 in the Summary worksheet, insert a date function to calculate the number of years between 1/1/2018 in cell H2 and the last remodel date in the Last Remodel column (cell F8). Use relative and mixed references correctly. Copy the function to the range G9:G57. Unit 101 was last remodeled 13.75 years ago. Ensure that the function you use displays that result.
3 In cell H8, insert a nested logical function to display the required pet deposit for each unit. If the unit has two or more bedrooms (C8) AND was remodeled less than 10 years ago (cell H3), the deposit is $275 (cell H4); if not, the deposit is $200 (cell H5). Use relative and mixed references correctly. The pet deposit for Unit 101 is $200.
4 In cell I8, enter a nested logical function to display Need to Remodel if the apartment is unoccupied (No) AND was last remodeled more than 10 years ago (H3). For all other apartments, display No Change. Although Unit 101 was last remodeled over 10 years ago, the recommendation is No Change because the unit is occupied.
5 Copy the functions in the range H8:I8 to the range H9:I57.
6 In cell B3 insert a nested MATCH function within an INDEX function that will look up the rental price in column D using the apartment number referenced in cell B2. With 101 entered in cell B2, the lookup function displays $950.00.
7 In the Database sheet, enter conditions in the criteria range for unoccupied two- and three-bedroom apartments that need to be remodeled. Enter criteria as text only, without use of quotation marks. Be sure to enter the criteria separately in rows 3 and 4.
8 Apply an advanced filter based on the criteria range (A2:H4). Filter the existing database (range A15:H65) in place. Nine apartments meet the advanced filter conditions.
9 In cell C8, use the DCOUNTA database function to calculate the number of apartments that need to be remodeled based on the advanced filter you created.
10 In cell C9, enter a database function to calculate the total value of monthly rent lost for the apartments that need to be remodeled based on the advanced filter you created.
11 In cell C10, enter a database function to display the date of the apartment that had the oldest remodel date based on the filtered data. Format the result with Short Date format.
12 In the Loan sheet, insert formulas in the range E2:E4 to calculate the loan amount, the number of payment periods, and the monthly interest rate, respectively. Use cell references in all formulas.
13 In cell E5, enter a financial function to calculate the monthly payment. In cell E6, insert a financial function to calculate the cumulative total interest paid throughout the loan. Make sure the results display as positive numbers.
14 In cell C11, enter a formula to reference the date stored in cell B7. Insert a nested function in cell C12 to calculate the date for the next payment. Nest the YEAR, MONTH, and DAY functions within the DATE function. Add 1 to the month result. Copy the function to the range C13:C34.
15 In cell D11, enter a formula to reference the value stored in cell E2. Insert a formula in cell D12 that references the ending balance for the previous payment row (G11). Copy the formula in D12 to the range D13:D34.
16 In cell E11, enter a financial function to calculate the interest paid. Copy the formula to the range E12:E34. The result should be a positive value.
17 In cell F11, enter a financial function to calculate the principal payment. Copy the function to the range F12:F34. The result should be a positive value.
18 In cell G11, enter a formula to calculate the ending balance. Copy the formula to the range G12:G34. Adjust the width of column G, if needed, to display the values. Select the range D11:G34 and apply Accounting Number Format.
19 In cell I4 insert a financial function to calculate the present value of the total monthly rent you will collect for the 8 units for 30 years. Use the number of periods and monthly rate in the Summary Calculations section and the cell references in the What If section. The result should be a positive value.
