Introduction
You have six (6) tasks to complete for this assessment. Before you begin we suggest you create a new folder on your computer and call it Complex Spreadsheet Tasks. You will progressively save your spreadsheet assessment work in this folder. Once you have completed all six (6) tasks, you should upload your work.

Important note about capturing screen images

In a number of tasks you need to capture before and after images of your work and paste these into a Word document. Things like toolbars and macros are specific to the Word application on your computer. To assess your work the Assessor will need to see an image of your computer screen both before and after you completed the task.

Taking a screen image

Step 1: Maximise the screen you want to copy, i.e. make sure it takes up the whole of your computer screen. Step 2: Press the Print Screen button on your keyboard. Step 3: In a Word document, press the Paste icon (or use Ctrl V) to see a picture image of your screen. Step 4: Dont forget to save your Word document containing the screen image/s.

i. In Sheet 1 create a simple spreadsheet for the month of January which has columns showing sales (excluding GST), costs and profits and rows displaying a number of products (e.g. pears, apples and bananas). ii. You can make up the figures you use. For example, sales of pears could be valued at $500; costs associated with pears could be $200, so your profit on pears would be $300, i.e. sales minus costs. Use a formula to calculate your profit figures. iii. Checkpoint: Make sure your spreadsheet has appropriate column and row headings showing sales, costs and profits across the top, and your products down the side. iv. You should then add a row to calculate the total sales, costs and profits for the month. You must use formulas to calculate the totals. NB. You will be using these monthly totals when you create your quarterly worksheet below. v. Change the label of Sheet 1 to January. vi. Create a pie chart showing the sales, costs and profits for one of the products. vii. Add the header January financial data to the pie chart and print it. c) Repeat the process in step (b) by creating two more worksheets in the same workbook. One will be for February data (Sheet 2) and one will be for March data (Sheet 3). d) Follow the steps below to create your Quarterly financial data: i. Create another worksheet (Sheet 4) and re-label it as Quarter. This quarterly worksheet will show the total sales, costs, and profit for January, February, and March. NB. As for your monthly worksheets, sales, costs and profits will be your columns, but this time your rows will be the months of January, February & March. ii. These totals should be taken from your monthly worksheets. To do this, you MUST use a link from the monthly sheets to the quarterly sheet. You may like to revisit the online training demonstration if you cant remember how to do this. iii. You should then add a row to calculate total sales, costs and profits for the quarter. You MUST use formulas to calculate the totals. e) Follow the steps below to calculate GST on your quarterly sales: i. First, on your quarterly worksheet, insert the GST rate of 10% in an empty cell. You are going to use this as an absolute cell reference for calculating your GST. ii. Create a new column called GST and calculate GST on your January, February and March sales figures. NB. You MUST use the absolute cell reference in your calculation. iii. Calculate your total quarterly GST amount. Task 6
