For example, you can use the COUPPCD function to identify the most recent coupon date for a bond before it was traded to a buyer.
COUPPCD(Settlement, Maturity, Frequency)
|Settlement (required)||Date||The bond settlement date, when the bond is traded to the buyer.|
|Maturity (required)||Date||The bond maturity date, when the bond expires.|
The number of coupon payments per year.
If you use any value other than 1, 2, or 4, the function returns a blank result.
The COUPPCD returns a date.
- The settlement and maturity dates must be between 01/01/1900 and 12/31/2399.
- The maturity date must be later than the settlement date.
