Spreadsheet coursework By saad ijaz Caterham high school Centre no. 13321 Candidate no. 0199 Rent it!!!!!! Games rental To start my project I have chosen that I would do a spreadsheet for a games rental shop. This shop would be renting out games for people to borrow over a period of 3 nights. If the games are brought back later than the due in date then there will be a fine of �1 every night. I think choosing to do a games rental shop is quite a good choice because it would involve lots of calculations. I think that excel would be very suitable software to use for this games shop as it would give me all the calculations and results and graphs. I am going to have a stock sheet on excel and another sheet which involves the sales and late charges. I will be calculating things such as adding up sales and late charges and adding up. Excel is the best program to calculate because I would be using its features to calculate. Using formulas you can calculate the whole database in a second. These are the sorts of calculations that we can get from excel: * Average sales per week * Most rented game * Adding up the number of rentals in a week * Working out the profit * Fine charges etc. ...read more.


When you enter the data in flexi data you have to fill in a form. Then I copied and pasted into excel. I need quite a few different types of data. For example the most common used would be text. It will be used in the stock, customer names, and other customer details. The most important one however would be codes and serial no. for my stock. These codes represent the type of game that it is. So a sports game would start with 3 and every time a customer is looking for a sports game you would look in the 3 column and find the game the customer needs. The serial number however is an individual number given to each game in stock. The problem that excel solves is that it holds all the stock information. It calculates the prices for the rented out games and it would also calculate the fine charges for the late games brought back. Customers would be fined �1.00 for every night they keep the game Overdue. On sheet 2 there is all the information about the business and how the whole week has gone showing results and profits earned by late charges. There are lots of copies for one game and since they all have to be returned one day by the customer there is a serial number to see which customer took out which copy. ...read more.


So if any customer has a late fee to pay or hasn't returned a due in game then the shop owner would have to go through this: Flowchart next page------------->>>>>>>>>>>> No Yes In this part of the project I have now created my spreadsheet here I will show what changes and testing were done to the spreadsheet and how I managed to get my final implement. The main change that I gave to my spreadsheet was unique stock names. As I mentioned in my analysis that I will keep the stock name the same but a unique serial number. However I found out that when Vlookup was used to get data from one sheet to the other the data was not shown uniquely. Below is an example of what happened. A very important part of the spreadsheet is validation. This was also part of my testing. To test my spreadsheet I tied to enter an anomaly data into a validated cell and see what message appears. How ever the most use of validation in my spreadsheet was a dropdown list. Here is what I had done. Finally my main part of implementation is the testing and user responses. I tested my spreadsheet as mentioned above by using validation. Below are a couple of more examples of testing. Testing continued testing if a macro works. That button took me to this screen so my test was successful. ...read more.
