Assignment #5
Due 10/04/05

Note: The exercises in Liengme are written as if you have your options set so that File, New creates a blank workbook with 3 blank worksheets in it. I recommend that you set the number of worksheets in a new workbook to 1. (Choose Tools, Options…. Under the General tab, type a "1" in the Sheets in new workbook: box.) You can then add a blank worksheet whenever you need one. (Choose Insert, Worksheet.) On this same screen, you can set the default file location and user name.

Create a separate workbook (*.xls file) for each chapter. Name each file "ABC-chapterX.xls" (without the quotes). Change ABC to your initials; change X to the chapter number. Alternatively, you may put all the work in a single Excel file called "ABCAssignment5.xls" as long as you name each sheet something that makes sense. Save your files in a folder on your I:\ drive named "HW5." Then submit them using the dropbox in WebCT. Note: If you want to carry your files home on a floppy, I recommend that you copy them from your network drive or the hard drive. Excel does not like working with files on a floppy.
