Dear Sir,

i want to calculate interest from one date to another date. the amount is entered by user and the both dates are also provided by users.the interest should be calculated on basis of 365 days.

for Example: one date is 01-04-2013 and another date is 22-05-2013. and the Rate of interest is 15% per annul. so my calculation is Amount X 15% X  51 days/365 days.

Pls give Message box option so user can Enter the amount,Start Date & End Date. and Interest rate keep in backhand.



this should get you started.  

Sub abc()
Dim amt As Single
Dim Startdate As Date
Dim Enddate As Date
Dim days as Long
amt = Application.InputBox("Enter Amount: ", "Amount", Type:=1)
Startdate = Application.InputBox("Enter Start Date:", "Start Date", Type:=1)
Enddate = Application.InputBox("Enter End Date: ", "End Date", Type:=1)
If Enddate < Startdate Then
 MsgBox "Incorrect dates"
 Exit Sub
End If
days = Enddate - Startdate
Debug.Print days
Results = amt * (days / 365) * 0.15
MsgBox "Results are: " & Format(Results, "$ #,##0.00")
End Sub
