Office 2013 MyITLab MS-Excel Grader Salary Data

As the Human Resources Manager, you maintain employee salary data. You exported data from the corporate database into an Excel workbook. You want to display subtotals for salary by city. For further analysis, you want to create a PivotTable to determine what the total salaries would be if employees who earn an Excellent rating get a 5% increase in salary. Finally, you want to create a PivotChart that depicts what percentage of employees earn each performance rating.


For the purpose of grading the project you are required to perform the following tasks:
