1. Your boss has given you a list of data and asked you to identify who your star customers are (your top 30%). How would you indicate this visually?
Highlight the total spend column and apply a star icon set to it
Highlight the total spend column and apply data bars to it
Write a formula to identify if each customer is in the top 30
2. Assuming that you have a range of data in D10:D50, how could you quickly color all the values over $5,000?
Set up a Greater Than 5000 conditional formatting rule over D10:D50
Write a formula in E10 that reads =IF(D10>5000,”Over”,””) and copy it down beside the table.
Sort the data in D10:D50, then color it
3. If you wanted to identify the top 25% and bottom 25% of values in a column, which would be the best way to do it?
Set up a Highlight Cells Between conditional formatting rule
Set up a Top 10% and Bottom 10% conditional formatting rule, changing the % to 25% for each
Sort the data ascending and use a formula to determine which cells fit into each quartile
