    Peter,

    The Payment function is discussed, with examples, in the Expression Function Reference PDF.

    Here's a simple example I've whipped up for you. Unzip the attachment to a separate folder. Do not mix it with your development work.

    Welcome to Alpha Five.

    Peter,

    I won't answer this one because I don't do too much with financial calculations but you should know that there is an article called "Quick Amortization Schedule" at learnalpha.com.

    The drawback is that the article uses pre version 5 (that is, version 4) methods. Still, it is relevant.

    Others will doubtless chime in with more pertinent responses.

    Peter,

    Bill's reference to learnalpha.com merits another mention. When you visit www.learnalpha.com you'll find a collection of useful articles, mostly based on Vers 4 of Alpha 5, but almost all still very useful. As you become more familiar with Alpha Five, don't forget to spend time browse the collection of articles because they'll be a big help to you. Many of us have printed them out, stored them in notebooks, and regularly refer to them.
