Help with Excel Financial Function

  Durko 10:32 16 May 2005

Help with this excel financial query would be appreciated.I'm not sure of the NPER, PMT, FV, format stuff!

If I know I will have a debt of £13,872 after 3 years study,

Assuming an constant interest rate of 5%,

And I make a payment every month for 3 years,

How much would I need to save each month to meet the debt?

If anyone could assist with the correct function I'd be very grateful.

Can't help you with the function I'm afraid, but if you have MS Works there is a ready made Loan Analysis spreadsheet. I just tried it based on your figures. All the formula's are IF Statements rather than Functions though.

I could email you the IF statements but you would need to change the cell references to your own?

The results I got were (if it is any good to you):

Monthly payments 415.76
Total number of payments 36
Yearly principal + interest 4,989.08
Principal amount 13,872.00
Finance charges 1,095.23
Total cost 14,967.23
