expression.AccrIntM(Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, Arg4, Arg5)
expression A variable that represents a WorksheetFunction object.
|Arg1||Required||Variant||The security's issue date.|
|Arg2||Required||Variant||The security's maturity date.|
|Arg3||Required||Variant||The security's annual coupon rate.|
|Arg4||Required||Variant||The security's par value. If you omit par, ACCRINTM uses $1,000.|
|Arg5||Optional||Variant||The type of day count basis to use.|
Important Dates should be entered by using the DATE function, or as results of other formulas or functions. For example, use DATE(2008,5,23) for the 23rd day of May, 2008. Problems can occur if dates are entered as text.
The following table describes the values that can be used for
|Basis||Day count basis|
|0 or omitted||US (NASD) 30/360|
The following list contains information to be aware of when working with ACCRINTM
- Microsoft Excel stores dates as sequential serial numbers so they can be used in calculations. By default, January 1, 1900 is serial number 1, and January 1, 2008 is serial number 39448 because it is 39,448 days after January 1, 1900.
- Issue, maturity, and basis are truncated to integers.
- If issue or maturity is not a valid date, ACCRINTM will generate an error.
- If rate ≤ 0 or if par ≤ 0, ACCRINTM will generate an error.
- If basis < 0 or if basis > 4, ACCRINTM will generate an error.
- If issue ≥ maturity, ACCRINTM will generate an error.
- ACCRINTM is calculated as follows:
A = Number of accrued days counted according to a monthly basis. For interest at maturity items, the number of days from the issue date to the maturity date is used.
D = Annual Year Basis.
