INFS 2200 T5-Final Exam Instructions 200pts

Get the “T5-FinallExamV2.xlsx” file and complete the exercises as indicated in these instructions. Save your file as LastName-FinalExam.xlsx”. Submit your file by the deadline.

This is an “open book” exam – use any resources to find information on the DATEDIF() Excel function.

The Case: You are the payroll manager for T5 Warehouse, a retailer of gourmet products with 100 employees. You are in charge of preparing the employees’ payroll and generate some reports for the directors.

1. In the “Documentation” sheet, enter your name and date. (2)

2. The “Work Tables” sheet contains the tables you will use in this exam. Familiarize yourself with the tables’ range names and possible uses.

ServiceDate – the base date for the Years of Service in the report

HeatlhPlanRates – lists the monthly premium per plan

Recognition – lists the award amount based on years of service

Bonus – lists the bonus amount based on pay grade

Intertab – lists the annual interest rate per loan duration (years)

3. The “EmployeeData” sheet contains payroll data. You are tasked with completing the payroll report information by entering all the required formulas in the required columns (M to R). Make sure to use proper formulas with absolute (or range names) and relative address ranges. See sample output below. (66 max)

4. In column M, use a formula to compute the Years of Service as the difference between the Hire Date (column C) and the SERVICE_DATE range name; return the difference in years. Use the DATEDIF() function. (8)

5. Copy the formula down to all employee rows.(8)

6. In column N, use a formula to compute the life insurance premium value. Use the following logic: if the Add Life Ins (column H) cell value equals “Y” then the premium is one-tenth of 1% of the annual salary, otherwise is 0. Hint: use the IF() function. (5)

7. Copy the formula down to all employee rows.(5)

8. In column O, use a formula to compute the 401(k) value. Use the following logic: if the employee Job Status is full time (“FT” in column G) and the employee’s years of service (column M) is greater or equal to 1 then, the 401(k) value is 3% of the annual salary, otherwise is 0. Hint: Use IF() and AND() functions. (5)

9. Copy the formula down to all employee rows.(5)

10. In column P, use a formula to compute the Bonus value. The Bonus value is based on the Pay Grade (column I), see the BONUS range name table. Hint: use the VLOOKUP() function. Make sure you use an exact match. (5)

11. Copy the formula down to all employee rows.(5)

12. In column Q, use a formula to compute the Health Cost value. The Health Cost is based on the Health Plan code in column L. Use the VLOOKUP function to get the monthly premium from the HealthPlanRates range name table and multiply this value by 12 to get the annual cost. Make sure you use an exact match. (5)

13. Copy the formula down to all employee rows.(5)

14. In column R, use a formula to compute the Award value. The Award is based on the years of service (column M). Use the VLOOKUP function to get the award value from the Recognition range name table. Make sure you use an approximate match. (5)

15. Copy the formula down to all employee rows.(5)
