Hello, I recently upgraded from OpenOffice and everything seems to be working great. I do have a question about the built-in NPV function in Calc however. Calculating the NPV of a given cash flow using the built-in function and doing a manual calculation provide drastically different results. I am not sure what the built-in function uses, but I am using the fairly standard formula of: (Value of Cash flow at period t) / (1 + r) ^ t Is this expected behavior? I am using a Debian build of version 3.3.1.
What specifically are you entering in the NPV formula?
