Exp22 Excel Ch03 HOE Jobs

Excel Chapter 3 Hands-On Exercise – Computer Job Outlook 


Project Description:

You are an academic advisor for the School of Computing at a university. You researched the job outlook that indicated the number of jobs in 2019 and the estimated number of jobs in 2029. You will prepare several charts to help you identify trends.


Start Excel. Download and open   the file named Exp22_Excel_Ch03_HOE_Jobs.xlsx.   Grader has automatically added your last name to the beginning of the   filename.



You want to start by creating a   clustered column chart. You will focus on the first four jobs included in the   list.

  In the Outlook sheet, use the Insert tab to create a clustered column chart   for the range A5:D9. Cut the chart and paste it in cell H1. Set 3.5″ height and 5.3″ width for the chart.


Next, you want to create a   recommended chart to depict the number of people for each job and the   estimated number of new people by 2029.

  In the Outlook sheet, use the Recommended Charts feature to create a   recommended chart for the ranges A5:B12 and D5:D12. Change it to a stacked   bar chart and move it to a chart sheet named Bar Chart


For the third chart, you want to   see what percentage each job contributes to the total job pool for this   group.

  Display the New Jobs worksheet, select the range A4:B9 and use Quick Analysis   to create a pie chart. Move the pie chart to a chart sheet called Pie Chart. Note, Mac users use the ribbon   to create the pie chart.


The last chart will depict the   number of new jobs and the related percentage increase. Because the two data   types are different, you will create a combo chart.

  In the Outlook sheet, select the ranges A5:A12 and D5:E12, and create a combo   chart with Clustered Column – Line on Secondary Axis. Move the combo chart to   a chart sheet called Combo Chart


It is important to replace the   default chart titles with actual descriptive chart titles.

  With the combo chart selected, type Number of New Jobs by 2029 for the chart title. Apply bold   and Black, Text 1 font color to the chart title.
  Select the pie chart, type New Computer-Related Jobs by 2029 for the chart title. Apply   bold, 18 pt font size, and Black, Text 1 font color to the chart title.
  Select the bar chart, type Projected Number of Jobs by 2029 as the chart title.
  Select the column chart, type Number of Jobs 2019 and 2029 for the chart title. Apply bold   and Dark Blue font color to the chart title.


You want to add a value axis   title to clarify the column chart.

  With the column chart selected, add a primary horizontal axis title and type Job Titles as the axis title. Apply Dark   Blue font color to the axis title.


Adjusting the value axis   settings will make the axis labels easier to read on the bar chart.

  Select the bar chart, change the maximum bound for the value axis to 1800000 and display the units in   Thousands. Apply Dark Blue font color to the axis title, Thousands.


Showing percentages for pie   slices is important to knowing which job contributes what percentage of the   overall new jobs.

  Select the pie chart, add data labels in the Inside End position. Display   Percentage labels. Remove the Value data labels. Apply bold and 18 pt font   size to the data labels.


You want to apply a texture fill   to the chart area to create a softer appearance around the pie chart.

  Apply the Blue tissue paper texture fill to the chart area on the pie chart.


It is a best practice to add Alt   Text for a chart for accessibility compliance.

  With the pie chart selected, add Alt Text: Displays the percentage of new computer   jobs by job title. (including   the period).


You want to emphasize one job   category with a different fill color and by setting it apart from the rest of   the pie.

  Select the Computer Systems Analysts pie slice, apply Red solid fill color,   and explode the slice by 10%.


You want to give more contrast   to the bar chart. Therefore, you will apply a different chart style to the   bar chart.

  Select the bar chart and apply Style 10.


You decide to exclude the number   of new jobs to simplify the column chart.

  Select the column chart. Change data source by changing the chart data range   from D to C. Then switch the data series and categories so that the years are   on the category axis.


You want to insert a new column   so that you can insert sparklines later.

  In the Outlook sheet, insert a new column D. Type Trends in cell D5. 


You want to insert sparklines to   show the trends between 2019 and 2029.

  Select the range B6:C12 and insert Line sparklines in the range D6:D12.   Display markers on the sparklines and select Dark Blue, Sparkline Style Dark   #4. Change the marker color to Dark Red.


Each sparkline has its own start   and stop value. To depict the data more accurately, you will adjust the   minimum and maximum values on the axes.

  Customize sparklines by setting the vertical axis minimum value to be the   same for all sparklines and setting the vertical axis maximum value to be the   same for all sparklines. 


Save and close Exp22_Excel_Ch03_HOE_Jobs.xlsx. Exit   Excel. Submit the file as directed.
