# WorksheetFunction.Pmt (Excel)

Calculates the payment for a loan based on constant payments and a constant interest rate.

For a more complete description of the arguments in Pmt, see the Pv function. The following table describes the values that can be used for Arg5.

**Pmt** (Arg1, Arg2, ..., Arg5)

```
Dim dblArg1 As Double: dblArg1 =
Dim dblArg2 As Double: dblArg2 =
Dim dblArg3 As Double: dblArg3 =
Dim dblPmt As Double
dblPmt = WorksheetFunction.Pmt(Arg1:=dblArg1, Arg2:=dblArg2, Arg3:=dblArg3)
```

## Arguments

Arg1, Arg2, ..., Arg5Arg1 (Double) - Rate - the interest rate for the loan.

Arg2 (Double) - Nper - the total number of payments for the loan.

Arg3 (Double) - Pv - the present value, or the total amount that a series of future payments is worth now; also known as the principal.

Arg4 - Fv - the future value, or a cash balance you want to attain after the last payment is made. If fv is omitted, it is assumed to be 0 (zero), that is, the future value of a loan is 0

Arg5 - Type - the number 0 (zero) or 1; indicates when payments are due
