    Can anyone give me some guidance as to the following? I have a assignment for college, to complete a spreadsheet that can cover 12 months, and can have an investment figure input into once cell, and 12 cashflow payments recorded against each of the months. Is there a function in excel that will calculate the internal rate of return from the given pattern of cahflows?

    TIA

    Err, yes! It's called IRR. Say you had your initial investment in cell A1 and the cash flows in A2:A10 e.g.

    -1000
    200
    300
    200
    150
    100
    200
    300
    200
    100

    Then in cell A11 type this formula:-

    =IRR(A1:A10)

    You'll get the correct IRR of 14%.

    HTH,
