I am using ACCRINT(30/12/2007, 30/06/2008, 01/05/2008,0.0875,100,2,1) to compute accrued interest on a bond and EXCEL gives me 2.9564.
However, using simple mathematics, the accrued interest is 2.9167(8.75*122/366).
Any help please.
Thanks in advance.

I am stymied by the fact that this function does not decrease the accrued interest when a coupon payment date is passed. For instance, a bond with a 5% coupon rate that pays interest semi-annually, issued on 11-15-2006 with a first coupon date of 5/15/2007 should have accrued of $2.5 (per hundred face amount) on 5/15/2007 and accrued of $.0138 on 5/16/2007. The accrint function instead calculates the accrued on 5/16/2007 as $2.5138 in essence failing to account for the fact it just passed the 5/15/07 coupon payment date. What am I doing wrong?


I have four columns with data going down:

A = Date
B = Interest
C = Accrued Interest (Cumulative amount of column B)
D = Interest Paid (negative column C)

At the end of each month interest is paid. So Column D is IF(EOMONTH(A2,0)=A2,-C2,0) ; if it's not the end of the month, no interest is paid.

However, on the first day of the month, accrued should reset. So, for instance, accrued interest on 5/3/09 should be the sum of interest on 5/1/09 - 5/3/09; accrued interest on 6/16/09 should only be the sum of interest on 6/1/09 - 6/16/09. What formula can I use in column C to sum only the amounts in the current month? I'm trying to avoid doing this manually, as I'm going out several years.

Thank you in advance.


Scenario:

Monthly Interest accrued and Payable in the Month of March and September of every year. Each interest period has a different interest rate applied.

1. I need to sum all the accrued interest within a given interest period 1month x 6 month.

I used a formula that I found in J Walkenbach Excel 2002 Formulas book, but I am unable to make it return the right value e.g. payment number.

Formula in B42
{=INDIRECT(ADDRESS(ROW(Data)-MATCH(MIN(ABS(Target-Data)),
ABS(Target-Data),0)-1,COLUMN(Data)+ColOffset))}

I am trying to make it work so it give the correct results
Example
Dates between Periods 22/10/2007 and 22/03/2008 should result 2 in Cell C42
Dates between Periods 22/04/2008 and 22/09/2008 should result 3 in Cell C42
and so forth
Can anyone help with this formula?? Where did I go wrong
Sorry the formatting I had in excel did not translate to HTML well.


does anyone know how to calculate the interest so it matches this?
i would post the xls file but don't see how.

I am trying to develop a spreadsheet that will enable me to calculate the exact amount of accrued interest (compounded annually based on actual investment date). Typically I would just use a FV formula, but that only works if there is an investment made DAY 1 and no subsequent transactions afterwards. I am struggling with scenarios in which more than one investment is made over a period of time (at various intervals) or in which a distribution has been made, thereby reducing the amount of accrued interest.

Below is the beginnings of a basic example.

Date Investment Distribution
11/29/07 $100,000 $0
1/28/08 $20,000 $0
10/12/08 $0 ($15,000)

I would like to be able to create either a simple table or a couple of formulas that could easily tell me the amount of accrued interest on any given day. In the past I've done this by setting up a simple ledger that shows ins and outs and interest accruing, but for long investments this can get quite long.

Any ideas?

I must write a function for bond price in some other language (doesn't matter) so I looked for a formula for bond (PRICE) price in help (also on http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ex...092191033.aspx).
There is a good explanation of this calculation and first I wanted to check this formula in Excel .

I wrote a simple example for one bond with one year coupon and compared results of Excel function and my formula and noticed, that there is a small difference. Results are the same only when settlement date is on coupon date (ie. 17.04.2007). When it is between coupons (ie. 04.06.2007), the results of my formula is different. I've checked formula for accrued interests (third part of formula) with function ACCRINT and this part is ok, so difference must be in first two parts of formula.

What did I do wrong?

Regards, Dracan

My example was (copy text in blank woorkbook in A1):
Settlement:
04.06.2007
Maturity:
17.04.2008
Rate:
3,25%
Yld:
4,23%
Redemption:
100
Frequency:
1
Basis:
1
DSC:
=A4-A2
E :
366
N:
1
A:
=A2-(A4-A18)
Excell price:
=PRICE(A2;A4;A6;A8;A10;A12;A14)/100
Formula:
=(A28+A30-A32)/100
1. part
=(A10/((1+A8/A12)^(0+A16/A18)))
2. part
=(100*A6/A12)/((1+A8/A12)^(0+A16/A18))
3. part
=(100*A6/A12)*A22/A18
Difference
=A24-A26


I'm a bit confused what the second parameter in ACCRINT does. Microsoft has
documented the calculation of ACCRINT at
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/as...089791033.aspx but the
second parameter doesn't appear in the formula. Furthermore the calculation
of ACCRINT was changed somewhere between Excel 97 and Excel 2003:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/904826/en-us

I use Excel 2003. Is the second parameter in ACCRINT now deprecated? It
doesn't seem to affect the calculation most of the time. However when you
enter some special dates you get weird results. Try for example
ACCRINT("1/1/2000", "2/28/2000", "12/31/2000", 0.01, 100, 1, 0) and
ACCRINT("1/1/2000", "2/29/2000", "12/31/2000", 0.01, 100, 1, 0) - they don't
return 1. Is this a known bug or is there something I don't understand about
ACCRINT?

I have an excel document that contains several sheets specific to each account. Columns A (Deposits), C (Interest accrued for the month) & E (disbursements) contain dates while columns B, D, & F contain the amounts for each transaction. Column G contains the running total for each month B+D-F. I need a formula that can dispurse the amount of interest accrued for the month between the different accounts/sheets assuming there is money in that account at the end of the month in which the interest was earned. For example I accrued $1,146.00 of interest for the month of January 2009. I need a formula to go in column D that divides the $1,146.00 among the different spreadsheets based on each account's current balance on 01/31/2009.

Thanks!


I am trying to write a simple formula to calculate the amount of accrued interest on an investment with multiple in/out dates. In the example below, assume a $100k investment earning 7.50% compounded annually. In addition to the initial investment, assume a capital call (additional deposit) was made a couple years later and then a couple years after that, a distribution was made (assume it goes to pay accrued interest first).

The tricky part - the annual compounding takes place based on the initial investment date, so running FV formulas off of the subsequent investments/distributions is not possible.

I am trying to firm up an investment tracking database for my company's real estate investors, and I'd like to get away from having to build massive spreadsheets that track interest on a daily basis.




Ultimately I'm trying to calculate Interest accrued from a specific date. The problem is payments can be interest only which when used should keep the next months interest at the same rate instead of decreasing because the principal hasn't been paid down.

Im having problems when over the course of a number of payments they are principal + Interest and Interest only which requires at times to add up the same interest amount for 2-3 months in a row, then add up a different interest rate, etc. Additionally if the reference date is say on the 15th and the interest date is the 1st then for the last month I need to calculate the interest on a daily basis based on the current interest rate for that month.

The reference cell is H5, the Date ranges are J2 - J12, and the principal fields a K2 - K12.

In the next post I will include the Amortization schedule.

In this example the interest is accrued at the same rate months 1-7, then decreased for months 8 and 9. so the total interest accrued should be eqaual to: $7487.74 (see next post for schedule).

I am attempting to calculate accrued interest on day end balances for the month. $0 to $4999 earn 0% interest, $5-14999K earn .6%, 15-34999 earn 1.5%, $35-59999 earn 1.75% and $60000 plus earn 2.25%.

I would like a set formula that can be used throughout my spreadsheet (for 31 days of the month) that will calculate daily what the interest is on the closing day balance based on the above parameters.

I have started with this =IF(B19>=5000,B19*E11/365*(G1-F12),IF(B19>=15000,B19*F11/365*(G1-F12),IF(B19>=35000,B19*G11/365*(G1-F12))))
However,it is only working for balances between $5000 and 15000 so obviously I am missing something!

Thanks in advance for your assistance!


I appreciate any help in advanced. I have promised my boss a Excel Spreadsheet calculating accrued interest to date on judgments we were awarded by first thing in the morning. Now at 3:00am I am ready to give up!

Hi,

I have the following

Interest Calculation Day -23rd of every month (say B1 = 23)

Date Interest Interest Sum
A5 (Onwards) B5 Onwards C5 Onwards
01/01/2008 $232
15/01/2008 $230

12/02/2008 $230
23/02/2008 $230 $690
26/02/2008 $230


I want to sum the interest on every 23rd of month in Column C which will be added to the loan amount. Can someone assist me to write a formula for this?

Thanks


I have a file that contains data and a date. However, in Column D the date is not always the same as the date supplied in column A.

When the dates do not match, I want the date in column D to replace the date in column A. If the activity category is accrued interest, we will leave the date alone in Column A.

The function I wrote is the following:

=IF(B11="Accrued Interest",A11,IF(A11=MID(D11,FIND("DUE",D11)+4,11),A11,MID(D11,FIND("DUE",D11)+4,11)))

I would like to however; create a VBA script that loops this formula for all rows of data and the replacement date is kept in Column A (thus overriding the original data.

Cell D8 gives an example. It is looking at Row 11. In this row, the date says Aug 31 however in Column D of the same line, the date is Aug 28. Therefore the result in cell D8 is Aug 28.

I want Cell D8 to be cell A11.

Does anybody know how I can incorporate a loop function with this formula so that I can do this for all of my data with the click of a button. I know this can be done with a function, but I honestly need the date to fall in Column A and for it to be a date and not a formula (therefore in the end I need a paste special -> values).

If anybody can help with this, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!


Hi everyone,

Thanks in advance for your help.

I am trying to write a model to show interest over a period, for a money market fund. The only inputs I want to have are settle date, redemption date, principal investment and interest rate.

Interest is calculated as follows:

Principal * rate * (days/365) = interest

Here is the problem,

Interest is paid on the first of the month, for the days invested the previous month. For instance, on Feb 1, interest is paid for the number of days invested in Jan. The interest is accrued off the reinvested principal + interest for the following month.

Assumptions: Balance never changes, except interest payments (no withdrawls or contributions). Interest rate never changes

I made a sheet, but it is big, and requires a lot of manual data, as the days/month varies each month. How can I make this better?


So I have a spreadhseet that has two columns. Column A holds the date and Column B specifies what it is.

I want to in VBA code skip the line if the line in Column B says "Accrued Interest".

However, if it is anything else, I want to format that date to "dd/mm/yyyy" format.

Is there an easy way to do this. I'm having difficulty on skipping a row based on if the cells in Column B = "Accrued Interest".

Thanks in advance!


I want to calculate interest on an old account. If the principle is $3300, account is 68 months old and interest accrues at 1.5% monthly would this be the correct formula to give me the total due including principle and interest:

$3300(1+0.15)^68


I have a list of entries in a database, with a date at the beginning of each.

Like so.

I know how to use the count function so it will say 4 above 10/09/2008 etc.

But how do i get these count totals on another sheet, within the same spreadsheet?

Thank you for your time.


Hello all MrExcel Message Board viewers! I am having a difficult time trying to get a formula to work. The formula ACCRINT() formula doesn't appear to be defined (I was receiving a 'sub or object not defined' error). So I thought that I would have the formula text entered into the cell, but now I cannot properly reference the cells. I think that this is because its been a long week. Anyway, can anyone help me with the correct way to reference the cells within the formula. My code is posted below... (By the way, this code is associated to a command button within a user form.) Thank you, in advance, very much!

Private Sub cmdAdd_Click()

Dim iRow As Long
Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = Worksheets("Warrant Data")

'find first empty row in database
iRow = ws.Cells(Rows.Count, 1) _
.End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Row

'check for an Issue Date
If Trim(Me.IssueDate.Value) = "" Then
Me.IssueDate.SetFocus
MsgBox "Please enter the Issue Date"
Exit Sub
End If

'copy the data to the database
ws.Cells(iRow, 1).Value = Me.IssueDate.Value
ws.Cells(iRow, 2).Value = Me.TransitDate.Value
ws.Cells(iRow, 3).Value = Me.SerialNumber.Value
ws.Cells(iRow, 4).Value = Me.Amount.Value
ws.Cells(iRow, 5).Value = Me.MaturityDate.Value
ws.Cells(iRow, 6).Value = 0.0375
ws.Cells(iRow, 7).Value = "=ACCRINT(Cells(iRow, 1), Cells(iRow, 5), _
Cells(iRow, 2), Cells(iRow, 6), Cells(iRow, 4), 1, 2, True)"

'clear the data
Me.IssueDate.Value = ""
Me.TransitDate.Value = ""
Me.SerialNumber.Value = ""
Me.Amount.Value = ""
Me.MaturityDate.Value = ""

End Sub


I have a file that has, in the third row, cashflows on which interest is to be accrued (in this case, compounded at 10% annually). I am trying to show the cumulative value of those cashflows plus accrued interest, calculated in a single row. This formula is what I came up with:

=SUMPRODUCT(($S3:W3)*((1.1)^(COLUMN(W3)+1-COLUMN($S3:W3))))

Now, I need to introduce a limit by which interest is only compounded for a certain period of time. Trying to limit the interest to three years, I tried:

=SUMPRODUCT(($S3:W3)*((1.1)^(MIN(3,COLUMN(W3)+1-COLUMN($S3:W3)))))

However, the MIN function appears to be outside of the array as it keeps returning "1." So, I think what is happening is that I'm getting Min(3,{5,4,3,2,1})=1 where what I'm hoping for is an array of {min(5,3),min(4,3),min(3,3),min(2,3),min(1,3)} to multiply by the array of cashflows.

Just to be clear, the result that I'm looking for would look something like this:

Investment by Year: 1,0,1,0,0,0,1,... (it goes on for 50 or so columns)
Ending Value by Year: 1.1, 1.21, 2.43, 2.54, 2.66,2.66,3.76,...
Where the values are calculated as: 1.1^1, 1.1^2, 1.1^3 + 1.1^1, 1.1^3 + 1.1^2, 1.1^3 + 1.1^3,1.1^3 + 1.1^3, 1.1^3 + 1.1^3 + 1.1^1,...

Thanks!

P.S. - I hope my first post is worthy. I've used this board for some time and have generally been able to find an answer without posting. However, my search for 'Min and Sumproduct" was not fruitful.


Hi All,

I am hoping that someone can help me with this one, I've been working on it for a while and it has me totally stumped.

Basically I need a formula, located in column B that will check the date in column A against the dates in columns G & H and if its equal to or between those dates return the interest rate that relates to that date range.

Any help on this is massively appreciated
