demonstrate your expertise with Excel. The trust is sponsoring an auction, and

You have been asked to create a letter that will go out to each of the
contributors that will accept their donation. Tickets to the event will be
enclosed. The letter requires that you provide the following pieces of

items: one Excel spreadsheet (Lab4_yourlastname.xlsx), one letter
(Lab4_yourlastname.docx), and one sheet of labels
(Lab4_yourlastname_labels.docx). When submitting the workbook and Word
documents, provide a comment in the Dropbox comments area explaining what you
