Valsight version 5.7.0 introduces an advanced filter function in the filter management, a new interactive guide, and two more functions.
With the 5.7.0 release, Valsight is adding the tree-select mode to the filter management. With that feature, users have the advantage of explicitly only checking the boxes of shown items (e.g. after a search input) and faster visual confirmation.
In practice, that means that this feature follows a “what-you-see-is-what-you-get” approach to customize and simplify your filters in complex environments.
The RATE function calculates the interest rate per period of an investment.
Returns the interest rate per period of an annuity based on a number of periods, the amount of payments per period, a present value, a future value, a value indicating whether payments are due at the beginning or the end of period (type) and a guess.
RATE(Nper, Pmt, PV, FV [, Type, Guess])
Nper -> Number of periods: the number of payments to be made
Pmt -> Payment per period: the amount per period to be paid (Payments/costs should (but are not required to) be entered as a negative number e.g. -500)
Pv -> Present value: the current value of the annuity.
Fv -> [Optional] Future value: the future value remaining after the final payment has been made. If not entered, 'Fv' is set to 0.
Type -> [Optional] when the payments are due (1=pmt at beginning of period (Annuity Due), 0=pmt at end of period (Ordinary Annuity)). By default 'Type' is set to 0.
Guess → [Optional] A first guess what you think the RATE will be. By default ‘Guess’ is set to 10%.
Argument 'Pv' is the leading input node.
A leading input node is a function argument, for which we assume the levels to be correct. All other input nodes need to have the same dimensionality.
Each input node can be a single number
Providing all inputs with the same dimensionality results in a noticeable performance improvement
Guess and result values are entered/returned as decimal numbers, e.g. 10% = 0.1
If the successive results of RATE do not converge to within 0.0000001 after 20 iterations, RATE returns the #NUM! error value.
All other inputs must not contain levels that are not in the leading input node 'Pv'.
All level values that are in the leading input node 'Pv' , must be in all the other input nodes.
