PV
Updated: 5 August 2010
Use PV to calculate the present value of an investment.
Syntax
SELECT [westclintech].[wct].[PV] (
<@Rate, float,>
,<@Nper, float,>
,<@Pmt, float,>
,<@FV, float,>
,<@Pay_type, int,>)
Arguments
@Rate
the interest rate per period. @Rate is an expression of type float or of a type that can be implicitly converted to float.
@Nper
the total number of periods in the annuity to be calculated. @Nper is an expression of type float or of a type that can be implicitly converted to float.
@Pmt
the payment made each period. @Pmt cannot change over the life of the annuity. @Pmt is an expression of type float or of a type that can be implicitly converted to float.
@FV
the future value at the end of the annuity. @FV is an expression of type float or of a type that can be implicitly converted to float.
@Pay_type
the number 0 or 1 and indicates when payments are due. @Pay_type is an expression of type int or of a type that can be implicitly converted to int. If @Pay_type is NULL it is assumed to be 0.
Set @Pay_type equal to

If payments are due

0

At the end of a period

1

At the beginning of a period

Return Type
float
Remarks
· PV performs the following calculation:
PV = ((@Pmt * k) / @Rate)  @Fv
PV = PV / ((1 + @Rate) ^ @Nper)
PV = PV  (@Pmt * k) / @Rate
If @Pay_type = 0 Then k = 1 Else k = 1 + @Rate
Examples
SELECT wct.PV(0.08/12e+00
,20*12
,500
,0
,0)
