Section 1 – Assessment Task Overview and Description
Charlie would like a price list that his salespeople can use when on the ‘phone to customers. He’s asked you to put together a spreadsheet. It’s important that the spreadsheet is accurate as pricing errors can affect the profitability of the company, especially with orders involving large quantities.
The spreadsheet should conform to the corporate style guide which requires the Calibri font, 11pt for normal text and column headings, and 14pt for main headings. All headings should be bold and centred within their cells. Where numbers are amounts of money, the Accounting number format should be used.
This pricing data is sensitive and should be stored in the company’s secure drive [the student’s OneDrive] under the name PRICESNOV-XX (where XX is the student’s initials).
The company uses Microsoft Excel for internal documents.
Charlie has sketched out what he would like the price list to look like:

The Production Manager has supplied a tab-delimited text file that you can import into your spreadsheet application. This file contains a list of products along with their categories (cameras, lenses, bags, etc.) and their cost prices. You will use formulas to work out the prices based on these costs.
1. Complete your Spreadsheet Design Template based on the information above.
2. Import the tab-delimited file you received from the Production Manager (called ProductCategoryCost), by opening it from within Excel.
[Hint: you may have to select All Files or Text Files to see the file].
3. Make room at the top of your spreadsheet and create the heading and the three input boxes for Corporate discount rate, Camera markup and Accessories markup (apply the Input style to show which cells must be filled in by the user).
4. Enter a Corporate discount rate of 5%, a Camera markup of 10%, and an Accessories markup of 50%.
5. Create a Markup column and enter an IF formula in this column, so that if the Category is “Camera”, the markup is Cost*Camera markup; otherwise the markup is Cost*Accessories markup.
[Hint: don’t forget to use absolute cell references for markup cells at the top of the sheet]
6. Create a Retail price column which is Cost + Markup.
7. Create a Corporate price column which is the retail price less the corporate discount.
8. Create a Retail price incl. GST, by adding 10% to the Retail price; and create a Corporate price incl. GST, by adding 10% to the Corporate price.
9. Hide your Cost and Markup columns.
10. Change the Accessories markup to 60%.
11. Save your document as an Excel Workbook and ensure that your spreadsheet meets Charlie’s requirements for formatting and storage.
12. Choose someone to check your spreadsheet (different to the person you chose in the last portfolio exercise). You should deliver your spreadsheet for checking at least one week before the final delivery date (which is the assessment due date).
