PV function in Access

Does anyone know sql of the PV function in Access? (same function in

In access the inputs are PV («rate», «nper», «pmt», «fv»,
«due») where rate = discount rate, nper = number of payments, pmt =
payment) other two are not required.

nper is allowed to be a number with decimals, not just an integer.

Seeking sql code which will replicate the above, including nper with
decimals allowed. Thanks.

Assuming you mean SQL in JET, the expression service seems to be quite
happy to send PV off to VBA for evaluation. In other words one can
execute a query such as:
SELECT PV(0.08,12.768, PaymentAmount) FROM Table1
where PaymentAmount is a numeric field.

Thanks, but I do not mean sql in jet. SQL code in another sql
platform such as sql server. Or SQL in jet that would not use the
function pv but show the actual underlying code.

I think you will have to write your own in line function then, or
probably, better still, create a UDF in MS-SQL.
Perhaps, if you do a web search for Present Value you will find one
already created.

You could try this MS-SQL UDF which is something I cobbled together on
(this) Sunday morning BUT (trying to say this without offending)
If you can't write this yourself, can you apply it correctly in all
situations and should you?
I have tested it against the Excel function for !!!!!ONE!!!!! case; if
I were going to use it I would test it a few more thousand times.

ALTER FUNCTION dbo.PresentValu e
@Rate smallmoney,
@Periods money,
@Payment money,
@FutureValue money = 0,
@Type int = 0
DECLARE @PresentValue money

Deal with Nulls
If @FutureValue IS NULL
SET @FutureValue = 0
SET @Type = 0

Type should be one or zero.
IF @Type != 0 AND @Type != 1
SET @PresentValue = 0
This is just a port of the Excel function
without any shortcuts for Rate = 0 or FutureValue = 0,
or simplification.
SET @PresentValue =
-(@Payment * (1 + @Rate * @Type)
* ((Power((1 + @Rate), @Periods) - 1) / @Rate)
+ @FutureValue) / Power((1 + @Rate), @Periods)
RETURN @PresentValue

Hi all, I've found a module that I think will help me combine fields properly, but I'm unsure how to add or use it with Access 2000.

Leaving 'Option Compare Database' on top I paste the module code in and save - naming it fConcatFld. It saves fine, but when I use fConcatFld in my query, like below:
