The following is a two-part assignment 1)
update the excel workbook, and 2) write a 1-page reflection.
Your coworker asked you to update and
protect the Second-Hand Auto Dealers data input workbook so that they could
send it to the Seattle dealership for use in maintaining and purchasing
inventory. For this workbook to be ready for use by the dealership, you will
need to complete the following.
1.
Download and save the Excel workbook titled
CH_5_Excel_Cars_Template and save it as CH_5_Excel_Cars_YourFirstandLastName.
2.
You will utilize the tab titled Data Validation to create a
Data Validation spreadsheet. You will need to provide data for each of the
lookup categories for the Data Input spreadsheet. You will be responsible for
creating the data lookup columns for the following categories. (If
you are unsure of how to complete this step, see the following video.)
Create a list for
the following categories that correlate with the Input data.

· List
8 different Auto Types
· List
of 12 Months
· List
12 different Years
· List
8 different Gallon amounts
· List
2 Gas Types
· List
5 different Prices per Gallon. (What you would pay for gas at the pump.)
· Create
a list from 1-10 for the # in Stock
3.
Once you have created your Data Validation
Category lists, you will begin protecting the Input Data Spreadsheet. You
will compete the following on the Input Data Spreadsheet. (If
you are unsure of how to complete this step, see the following video.)

· Auto
– (Column B) – you will create a data validation column for the cells B5:B12.
Apply the “Data Validation List”
option for the Auto Types.
· Month
– (Column C) – you will create a data validation column for the cells C5:C12.
Apply the “Data Validation List”
option for the Month.
· Year

Apply the “Data Validation List”
option for the Year.
· Gallons
– (Column E) – you will create a data validation column for the cells E5:E12.

The Total Cost, Budget and Stock columns

be correct. You will create protected columns that users will not be able to
change. (If you are unsure of how to complete this step, see the
following video.)

· Total Cost, Budget and Stock – (Columns I, J
and K) – create a PROTECTED column for each column that will keeps these
cells locked. (Cells I5:K12) All other columns, B, C, D, E, F, G and H user
will be able to change the data. (Password will be the same as the Password
used to protect the entire file…see below.)
It will be important to protect the entire
workbook from accidentally being opened by the wrong employee. You will need
to add a password to the entire workbook. (If you are unsure
of how to complete this step, see the following video.)

· Password protect the entire file
· Be
sure to provide your instructor with the password by posting it in the
comments when you submit the homework.

Write a one-page
reflection (Word document) on how you can use controls like these (data
validation, protecting data, and locking workbooks) going forward in your
career.

Submit your completed Excel workbook,
