Description

• 

Each command listed here is part of the Finance package, so it can be accessed by using either the long form or the short form of the command name in the command calling sequence. Since these commands used to be part of the (now deprecated) finance package, for compatibility with older worksheets, this command can also be called using finance[commandname]. However, it is recommended that you use the superseding package name, Finance, instead.
