Personal Finances

Project Description:
In this project, you will update a workbook to display bank transactions as a PivotTable. You will filter the PivotTable, format the values, display the values as calculations, and create a PivotChart using this data. Additionally, you will sort and subtotal data, create one- and two-variable data tables, and use Goal Seek and Scenario Manager to calculate possible mortgage payments. You will format grouped worksheets, set up validation rules, and create mathematical, logical, and lookup functions. You will also import a text file and XML data and manipulate the imported text. Finally, you will modify the document properties, insert a comment, and mark the workbook as final.
