Credit Card Expenses

 

Project Description:

You started recording every credit card transaction so that you can analyze your monthly expenses. You used an Excel worksheet to track dates, places, categories, and amounts. Because you are a consultant who travels periodically, you also have business expenses. You included a column to indicate the business-related transactions. Now you need to convert the data to a table, sort and filter the data to analyze it, and apply conditional formatting to apply a visual effect for further analysis.

 

Instructions:

For the purpose of grading the project you are required to perform the following tasks:
