AstroCoffee Company

Download Data File: SC3 Data 

AstroCoffee: Cynthia McHenry owns a coffee supply company named AstroCoffee. She needs some help writing the formulas for the order form she uses to invoice customers. You will need to write the formulas for all of the calculations on the form. Some of the more complex parts are determining if the customer will get a discount (based on the customer status) as well as the shipping charge (orders over $200 get free shipping). You will use IF functions for both of those calculations.

  1. Open the SC3 Data workbook and save the workbook as SC3 AstroCoffee.
  2. Enter the following order information:
    Order #: 45676
    Order Date: use a function that displays the current date
  3. Enter the following Billing Information:
    Edwina Copeland
    4270 Heron Way Portland, OR 97225
  4. For the Shipping Information, create formulas using cell references to display the corresponding information from the Billing Information section. For example, the Customer cell will display the name of the customer in cell C11.
  5. In the range B19:E22, enter the following item orders:
    Item # Description Qty Unit Price
    K56 Dark Mocha K-Cups (12 pack) 1 10.99
    G03 Decaf Dark Roast – Ground (1 lb.) 3 12.99
    B07 Dark Roast – Whole Bean (1 lb.) 2 13.99
    K52 Chai Latte K-Cups (12 pack) 3 12.99
  6. In cell F19, enter an IF function that tests whether the order quantity in cell D19 is greater than 0 (zero). lf it is, return the value of the Qty (in D19) multiplied by the Unit Price (in E19); otherwise, return no text by entering “”.
  7. Copy/fill this formula into the other cells in the range F19:F25. Hint: be sure to copy the formula to all of the Item Total cells, even if it is a blank row. You want the worksheet to be prepared for orders with more items in the future.
  8. In cell F26, calculate the sum of all of the Item Total cells.
  9. In cell F27, use an IF function to calculate the discount amount for this order based on the customer’s status (which is found in F16). If the customer’s status is Preferred, the discount amount will be the Order Subtotal times the discount percentage found in cell B29; otherwise the discount amount will be 0 (zero). Hint: You will need to use a formula for the Value if True argument.
  10. Calculate the Discounted Total for this order in cell F28. Hint: Use a simple subtraction formula.
  11. In cell F29, use an IF function to display the correct Shipping Charge, based on the amount of the Discounted Total. If the Discounted Total is greater than or equal to the Free Shipping Minimum found in cell B28, the Shipping Charge is 0 (zero); otherwise, the Shipping Charge is 5% of the Discounted Total. Hint: You will need to use a formula for the Value if False to calculate what 5% of the Discounted Total will be.
  12. Calculate the Invoice Total in cell F31. Hint: This will be the total of the Discounted Total and the Shipping Charge.
  13. Review the worksheet in Print Preview. Make any changes needed to make the worksheet print on one page.
  14. Save the SC3 AstroCoffee workbook.
  15. Submit the SC3 Astro Coffee workbook as directed by your instructor.
