from my response to you a week ago:
==============================================
For each row
1) subtract the earlier date from (1+ the later date) to get the # of days
at that interest rate
2) divide the number of days by the # of days in the year
3) multiply the result by the interest rate times the principal amount
==============================================

this does not solve my problem. i wish to enter the 1st date (7/5/2000) and
last date (today or any date ) and the amount on which interest is to be
calculated at simple rate.
==============================================

Sorry about what you WANT to do, but you still NEED to determine how many
days at each rate. In other words, you MUST do some work to get your answer
