This article describes the Office Excel 2003 issue that is fixed in the hotfix package that is dated November 7, 2005.This hotfix package fixes the following issue that was not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
- In Excel 2003, the ACCRINT function returns a different result than in Microsoft Excel 97 for Windows.
In Excel 97 for Windows, the ACCRINT function returns the accrued interest from the first_interest date parameter to the settlement date parameter.
However, in Microsoft Excel 2000 and later versions of Microsoft Excel, this behavior was changed so that the ACCRINT function returns the total accrued interest for all periods. Now, the ACCRINT function returns the same result as when the first_interest date parameter is set to a date that is equal to or less than the first period in Excel 97 for Windows.
