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.
