An existing spreadsheet has a formula which needs to be implemented in SQL. The user note indicates 3 months compounding formula where each rows stores 1 month of data.

(PRODUCT(1+A1:A3/100)-1)*100

The formula does not have curly braces around it to make it an array formula.

I tried to break the formula by first starting with PRODUCT(1+A1:A3). However, it is not same as (1+A1)*(1+A2)*(1+A3). The results of this is way too high. Alternatively, I tried - ROUND(AVERAGE(A1:A3)+1,0). It matches with results for few combination of values but not the all.

To simplify the request, pls help to translate PRODUCT(1+A1:A3) to SQL or plain English.

What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.

The order of operations would be the division is done first..
So you have
(1+(A1/100))*(1+(A2/100))*(1+(A3/100))
