Parameter definitions for financial functions are spread across those functions and are inconsistent

    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Deferred
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Later
    • Affects Version/s: ODF 1.2 CD 05
    • Fix Version/s: ODF-Next
    • Component/s: OpenFormula
    • Labels:
      None
    • Proposal:
      Hide

      I propose to gather up all the parameters for definition under 15.12.1 so that:

      1) we can have one consistent definition for any given parameter

      2) we can note and mark/explain when the use of a term changes

      Advice from the formula group would be appreciated. I am going to leave this issue and return to creating anchors and correcting prose. I did want to make a note of it so others could start looking at it. I don't know if this sort of inconsistency extends to other sets of functions but it would be helpful if someone wants to check.

      Description

      Some but not all of the financial functions have parameters reported as part of their definitions.

      Those parameters reflect different wordings for the same parameters. To illustrate, between 15.12.2 and 15.12.23 we find (not all cases reported):

      15.12.2 settlement The security's settlement date.

      15.12.3 settlement The security's maturity date.

      15.12.8 settlement The settlement date.

      15.12.16 settlement The settlement date of the security.

      15.12.23 Settlement: the date of purchase of the security.

      I suspect that 2, 8, 16 and 23 all have the same meaning but I would be hard pressed to swear to it.

      There are two aspects to this issue:

      1) The same parameters are repeated, often with slightly different wordings for the same meaning.

      2) The parameters are presented differently, compare 15.12.16 with 15.12.19 for example.
