time periods. It allows you to enter uneven values, each of which can be
either an inflow (cash received) or an outflow (cash paid out). Similar to an annuity's present value (PV) in the TVM worksheet, a typical
cash-flow problem usually has an initial cash flow (labeled CFo). This is
always a known, entered value. 30 Chapter 3: Using the Cash Flow Worksheet Grouped Cash Flows
In some cash-flow problems, every cash flow may be a unique value. In
other cash-flow problems, there may be consecutive cash flows of equal
You must enter unequal cash flows separately, but you can save time and
space by using the Fnn variable to enter groups of consecutive cash flows
of equal value. Entering Cash Flows
You can enter the initial cash flow and up to 24 additional cash flows, each
of which can be a unique value. Enter inflows as positive and outflows as
negative. If you have consecutive cash flows of equal value, you can enter
the cash-flow value and then a frequency of up to 9,999 for the number of
times the value occurs. Procedure: Entering Cash Flows
