COUPNCDGoogle Sheets Formula:
Incorrect Date Format
The dates provided in the settlement and maturity arguments should be entered as valid date formats recognized by Google Sheets, such as DD/MM/YYYY or using the DATE function. If the dates are not entered in a proper format, the function will return an error.
The frequency argument should be a number representing the number of coupon payments per year. If an invalid value is entered or if the value is not a number, the function will return an error.
Day Count Convention
The day_count_convention argument is optional and can be left blank. If entered, it should be a string representing the day count convention to use in the calculation. If an invalid value is entered or if the value is not recognized, the function will return an error.
