    2 Actual/360
    3 Actual/365

Return Value

The RECEIVED function returns a numeric value.


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

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

3. If the argument investment <= 0, or discount <= 0, RECEIVED function will return to an error value #NUM!.

4. If the argument settlement > maturity, RECEIVED function will return to an error value #NUM!.


1. In Excel, dates are stored as serial numbers. Default, Excel is the 1/1/1900 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. All arguments are truncated to integers, if the arguments including time, the time will be ignored.

3. You should better use date with a cell reference or you can directly use DATE function embedded in the RECEIVED function as this:


4. RECEIVED function is calculated as follow:
