• Make sure that you are consistent about the units you use for specifying rate and nper. If you make monthly payments on a four-year loan at an annual interest rate of 12 percent, use 12%/12 for rate and 4*12 for Arg2 . If you make annual payments on the same loan, use 12% for rate and 4 for Arg2 .

• Arg2 , Arg4 , Arg5 , and type are truncated to integers.

• If rate > 0, Arg2 > 0, or Arg3 > 0, CumIPmt generates an error.

• If Arg4 < 1, Arg5 < 1, or Arg4 > Arg5 , CumIPmt generates an error.

• If Arg6 is any number other than 0 or 1, CumIPmt generates an error.
