Hi I am looking for a program that automatically calculates the APR on a loan - can't find it in the Excel functions. Cell A has Loan Amount Cell B has % Interest Rate Cell C has closing costs Where can I find the APR formula? Thanks Cindy Hi Cindy! By APR I understand you to mean Annual Nominal compounded monthly. [I have to specify this as in the UK one legislative definition of APR is the Annual Effective Rate) I have: The loan in A1 [100000] The Nominal compounded monthly in A2 [5%] The Closing fees in A3 [2000] The term in A4 [120] =RATE(A4,PMT(A2/12,A4,A1,0,0),A1-A3,0,0,0)*1...

I am preparing a worksheet which calculates the length of a telephone cal from one time to another. I have a formula, which will calculate the elapsed time in the form h:mm:ss. I also need to add the total elapsed time of many calls with the goal of expressing the answer as minutes and tenths of minutes, for example the total may be 3,478.4 minutes. Any ideas how I can calculate elapsed time expressed as minutes and tenths of minutes rather that h:mm:ss? -- rwf To get decimal minutes use =SUM(Range)*1440 or perhaps =ROUND(SUM(Range)*1440,2) and format as general -- Regards, Peo Sj...

I have a database of substation outages that calculates the length of the outage (i..e. TimeOff, TimeOn). Its been working fine for a few years, but we just encountered a situation where a total outage time did not add properly. The total is calculated in hhr:mm format as follows: =Int(Sum([MinutesOff]/60)) & “.” & Format(Sum([MinutesOff]) Mod 60, “00”) It seems this works fine except in the very rare occasion when the total minutes equals exactly 60, which evidentally has never happened before. Then it doesn’t add that extra minute to the total. I’m thinking it must be in ...

Hi all, hope there's someone out there that has needed to do this I need to run a loan / credit account, the amount of which has the ability to go either up or down due to capital payments or drawdowns therefore it is not an amortised loan, but kind of works as if I am running a credit card..... credit cards don't seem to work out future interest, and loans only allow you to amortise one loan please help am guessing the answer is "you can't do that" then seeing as no response "Stevo" wrote: > Hi all, > > hope there's someone out there th...

I want to put some spaces between arguments in formulas to make the more readable but I was wondering if this slows down the calculation time? For example if I have a sheet with many formulas will the calculation times be different between the two examples?

Hi One of the fields in an Excel timesheet I use calculates the current week number. The formula is : =ROUNDUP(((Q9-DATE(YEAR(Q9),1,0))/7),0) Cell Q9 (referenced by the week number calculation) contains the following formula that calculates Friday's date for the current week : =IF((TODAY()-36651)/7-INT((TODAY()-36651)/7)>0,36651+7*INT((TODAY()-36651)/7)+7,TODAY()) The function works OK, except I usually have to tweak the week calculation formula annually, depending on when the new year starts. Generally changing ROUNDUP to ROUNDDOWN, or vice versa is all that is needed. ...

I setup a loan in Money 2004 and, based on the principal and interest calculations shown in the amortization schedule, it appears that Money is using the actual number of days between due dates to determine the portions of the payment that are principal and interest, which of course varies depending on the number of days in the month. However, my bank calculates the principal/interest split based on a standard 30-day month (360 day year). Is there a way to have Money use this type of amortization schedule instead of the one it's using by default? ...

Where did they place the loan comparison or mortgage calculator in 2007? -- David Schwartz Commack, NY Can't say for sure, but they may well have eliminated it. As you've noted elsewhere, the focus of Money development is on "monetizing the relationship" (or trying to make **some** or even ***any*** return on investment in the product, depending on how you look at it) not on features of use for personal finance management.
