Hello Everyone...

I need to ask you all how to do a equation. I have looked in the built in equations and can not find what I am looking for.

I need:

PV(Future Value, Interest Rate, Period)

PV= Present Value

Can anyone help me..

Very true. I figured it must not be or he wouldn't have needed to ask the question. I should know better by now...

Perhaps Joseph should try doing his own research before posting. ooo.gif

I have tried...FM7 does not know that formula...Is there any formula that has PV with a future value in it?

Just for the record...Like I said in the main post...I have checked with the default equations and I can not find one with this setup...

Just plug your values into the forumla.

FV/(1 + Interest Rate)^Period

Set Field [field, FV/(1 + Interest Rate)^Period]

Just substitute your field names for the appropriate ones.

I think you should try reading the online help before asking a question like this.

It could also be used as a calculation. I just presented the example as if you were setting a specific field with its results.

I also think you need to read all the FM documentation and help you can find before you ask further questions. You need to have at least a basic understanding of the application before we can be of much help to you.

Joseph,

BTW, ^ is also already included as an operator (kidding)

I'd have to agree FM's built in Financial functions aren't as easy to use than Excel's.

Though, you can still use FM as a calculator by giving the Math equation, when FM doesn't provide an already built in function...

But then please open your Math/Financial book as well... crazy.gif

Don't give us the whip Joseph... laugh.gif
