Syntax and arguments

Formula syntax

PRICEMAT(settlement, maturity, issuerate, yld, [basis])


  • Settlement: Required, the settlement date of the security. The settlement date is the date that the security is traded to buyer after the issue date.
  • Maturity: Required, the maturity date of the security. The maturity date is the date that the security expires.
  • Issue: Required, the date of the security issues.
  • Rate: Required, the interest rate of the security at date of issue.
  • Yld: Required, the annual yield of the security.
  • Basis: Optional, the type of day count basis to use. Default, it is omitted.

Basis Day Count
0 or omitted US (NASD) 30/360
1 Actual/actual
2 Actual/360
3 Actual/365
4 European 30/360

Return Value

The PRICEMAT function returns a numeric value.


1. If the argument settlement, maturity and issue are not valid dates, such as are the non-numeric value, or the dates that are earlier than 1/1/1900, the function will return an error value #VALUE!.

2. If the argument basis is out of range (0-4), the function will return an error value #NUM!.

3. If the argument either or both of rate and yld < 0, the function will return an error value #NUM!.

4. If the argument settlement date is later than the maturity date, the function will return an error value #NUM!.


1. In Excel, dates are stored as serial number. Default, 1/1/1900 is the 1990 date system which means that 1/1/1900 is the first valid day in Excel and stored as number 1 in Excel. So 1/1/2021 is stored as number 44197.

2. Argument settlement, maturity and issue are truncated to integers. If the arguments include time, the time will be ignored.

3. PRICEMAT is calculated as follows:

DIM: number of days from issue date to maturity.

DSM: number of days from settlement to maturity.
