In this project, you will work with sales data from Top’t Corn, a popcorn company with an online

store, multiple food trucks, and two retail stores. You will begin by copying the sales data for

one of the retail stores from another workbook. Next, you will insert a new worksheet and enter

sales data for the four food truck locations, formatting the data, and calculating totals. You will

create a pie chart to represent the total units sold by location and a column chart to represent

sales by popcorn type. You will format the charts, and then set up the worksheet for printing.

Next, you help Top’t Corn calculate payments for a loan and decide whether or not the purchase

is a good idea. Working with the daily sales data for one of the brick-and-mortar stores, you will

apply conditional formatting to find the top 10 sales dates. Y ou will also calculate the sales for

each date, and the average, minimum, and maximum sales. You will use Goal Seek to find the

appropriate price to reach a higher daily average sales goal. You will use VLOOKUP to look up

sales data for a specific date. Finally, you will work with their online sales data to format it as an

Excel table and apply sorting and filtering. You will create a PivotTable and a PivotChart from a

copy of the online sales data to summarize the sales.
