The Excel ODDFPRICE function returns the price per \$100 face value of a security with an odd (irregular) first period.

Syntax: ODDFPRICE(settlement, maturity, issue, first_coupon, rate, yld, redemption, frequency, [basis])

The ODDFPRICE function syntax has the following arguments:

• Settlement    Required. The security’s settlement date. The security settlement date is the date after the issue date when the security is traded to the buyer.
• Maturity    Required. The security’s maturity date. The maturity date is the date when the security expires.
• Issue    Required. The security’s issue date.
• First_coupon    Required. The security’s first coupon date.
• Rate    Required. The security’s interest rate.
• Yld    Required. The security’s annual yield.
• Redemption    Required. The security’s redemption value per \$100 face value.
• Frequency    Required. The number of coupon payments per year. For annual payments, frequency = 1; for semiannual, frequency = 2; for quarterly, frequency = 4.

Example: Let’s look at some Excel ODDFPRICE function examples and explore how to use the ODDFPRICE function as a worksheet function in Microsoft Excel: Syntax:  = ODDFPRICE (B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6, B7, B8, B9)

Result: Based on the Excel spreadsheet above, the following ODDFPRICE examples would return:

Syntax= ODDFPRICE (B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6, B7, B8, B9)
Result: 113.4828989

Syntax= ODDFPRICE (DATE (2008,11,11), DATE (2021,1,3), DATE (2008,10,15), DATE (2009,1,3), 0,0785,0,0625,2000000,2,1 )
Result: 113.4828989

Syntax: = ODDFPRICE (DATE (2008,11,11), DATE (2021,1,3), DATE (2008,10,15), DATE (2009,1,3), 7,85%, 6,25%, B7, B8 , B9)
