You currently work part-time in an automotive parts store. Because word of your knowledge of Excel has spread, you have been contacted by the district manager. The database used for keeping track of inventory has been corrupted, causing some issues with the inventory data. You have been asked to use your expertise in Excel to clean the inventory data.
Start Excel. Open the downloaded workbook named Excel_Ch09_PS2_Inventory.xlsx. Grader has automatically added your last name to the beginning of the filename. Save the file to the location where you are storing your files.
There are duplicate rows of data in the Inventory worksheet. These duplicate records need to be removed before the data can be further cleansed.
Remove any duplicates that exist in the Inventory worksheet. Duplicate records are any records with the same InventoryCode and ItemNumber.
The data for the Category/Manufacture has extra spaces, non-printable characters, and the case of the text needs altered in order to successfully cleanse the data. This process will take several steps and it will be easier if each step is completed in separate columns.
Enter the text Step 1 in cell G1.
The data in column C has nonprintable characters before and after the data contained in each cell. In cell G2, enter a formula to remove any nonprintable characters from column C. Copy the formula down the column.
Enter the text Step 2 in cell H1.
There are several spaces before and after the data in column G that need to be removed.
In cell H2, enter a formula to remove any extra spaces in the data from column G. Copy the formula down the column.
The category and manufacturer should be in two separate columns. Enter the text Category in cell I1.
Enter the text Manufacturer in cell J1.
Use Flash Fill to place the category data from column H in proper case in column I. Use Flash Fill to place the Manufacturer data from column H into the new column J. Owing to the nature of the data, Flash Fill will need to be invoked from the Data tab.
A new ItemCode will be constructed from the InventoryCode and ItemNumber columns. The first part of the ItemCode will be the InventoryCode displayed as uppercase letters.
Enter the text InvCode in cell K1. In cell K2, enter a formula to display the inventory code from column A as all uppercase letters. Copy the formula down the column.
Enter the text ItemCode in cell L1. The ItemCode is a combination of the inventory code in all uppercase letters, with the item number appended to it. For example, the first ItemCode should be UARM423949. Use the appropriate function in column L to create this new ItemCode and fill the function down the column.
Save and close Excel_Ch09_PS2_Inventory.xlsx. Exit Excel. Submit your files as directed.

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
I got my order information wrong, can I change that?
Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.
Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?
Yes you can. Email Anna at email@example.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
