```							Instructions for the Microsoft Excel Templates

Be advised, the worksheet and workbooks are not protected.

Extensive detail and information is contained within the manual.

Striking the "F1" key or following the path "Windows>Excel Help" will invoke the Office Assistant and bring up one

You should enter your name, course ID, and date name into the cells at the top of the page.

Each page contains a page footer with a Page # of Page ## as well as time and date to assist in assembly of
multiple pages.

Each worksheet contains the identification of the problem or exercise.

All formatting should have been accomplished to provide satisfactory presentation. See the text for additional
assistance in formatting.

There should be no need to insert columns or rows into the workbooks.

If more than one page is required by the problem, the page breaks are preset.

In general, the yellow highlighted cells are the cells which work and effort should be presented.

Place the proper account title in the cell where the word "Account title" appears on the template.

Place the value in the cell where the word "Value" or "Amount" appears on the template. A formula may be placed
in some of these cells.

Write a formula into cells where the word "Formula" appears. In these cells, an amount calculated can be
entered. An amount can be placed in these cells.

Place the explanation for the entry in the cell where the word "Text Explanation" appears on the template.

Insert the account number where "Acct Nbr" appears on the template during posting.

Insert the journal reference where "JOURN #" appears on the template during posting.

Insert the title in the cell where "TITLE" appears on the template.

The print area is defined to fit onto 8 1/2" X 11" sheets in portrait or landscape mode as required.

The gray filled cells define the perimeter of the problem and the print area.

The problem is formatted for whole dollars with comma separations (no cents) except where required.

The display may have "Freeze Pane" invoked so column titles remain visible during data entry.

Negative values may be shown as (\$400) or -\$400.

Consider using "Split" panes to assist in copy and paste of data.

Much of the exercises and problems can have data entered by the "look to" or "=A34" type formula where cell
A34 contains the data to be entered. This precludes typing and data entry errors.

Exercise:         E11-4, Depreciation Computations - Five methods
Course:
Date:
Wenner Furnace Corp. purchased machinery for                    \$279,000 on May 1, 2010. It is estimated
that it will have a useful life of      10          years, scrap value of    \$15,000     production of
240,000          units, and working hours of    25,000     During 2011 Wenner Corp. uses the
machinery for           2,650         hours, and the machinery produces       25,500     units.

Instructions:
From the information given, compute the depreciation charge for 2011 under each of the following
methods, (round to three decimal places):
(a) Straight-line (Note - Utilize Excel formula =SLN(Cost,Salvage,Life) to solve the problem.)
Formula

(b) Units-of-output (Note: Since units-of-production has an "s" in it, utilize salvage value in computing
period depreciation.)
Cost:      Amount
Salvage value:       Amount
Depreciable value:       Formula
Life units expected:      Number
Depreciation per unit:      Formula
Period units:      Number
Period depreciation:       Formula

(c) Working hours (Note: Working hours is a "units-of-production" method and since units-of-production
has an "s" in it, utilize salvage value in computing period depreciation.)
Cost:      Amount
Salvage value:       Amount
Depreciable value:      Formula
Hours of expected life:     Number
Depreciation per hour:     Formula
Period hours:      Number
Period depreciation:     Formula

(d) Sum-of-years-digits (Note - Utilize Excel formula =SYD(Cost,Salvage,Life,Period) to solve the
problem.) (Note: Second year covers two depreciation periods.)
First part of 2011              Formula      * (10/55) * (1/3) =        Formula
Second part of 2011               Formula       * (9/55) * (2/3) =        Formula
Formula

(e) Declining balance, (10 year life, DDB results in 20% annual rate, use 200% for Factor in Excel).
(Note: Utilize Excel formula =DDB(Cost,Salvage,Life,Period,Factor) to solve the problem.
(Note: Second year covers two depreciation periods.)
First part of 2011              Formula        * 20% * (1/3) =            Formula
Second part of 2011              Formula        * 20% * (2/3) =            Formula
Formula
