What is the ACCRINTM Function?

The ACCRINTM function is a financial function in Power BI that calculates the accrued interest for a security that pays interest at maturity. This function takes into account the issue date, maturity date, and interest rate of the security to calculate the accrued interest.

Once you have this information, follow these steps:

1. Insert a new column into your table by selecting the table and clicking on “New Column” in the “Modeling” tab.

2. In the formula bar, enter the following formula: =ACCRINTM([Issue Date], [Maturity Date], [Interest Rate])

3. Press enter to calculate the accrued interest for each row in your table.
