DDB () and FV() Function Function in MS Access
• Last Updated : 15 Sep, 2020

1. DDB() Function :
DDB() Function in MS Access is used to calculate the depreciation of an asset for a specific time period using the double-declining balance method or some other method. The DDB function uses the following formula to calculate depreciation for a given period :

`Depreciation / period = ((cost – salvage) * factor) / life`

Syntax :

`DDB(cost, salvage, life, period, [factor])`

Parameter : This method accepts five parameters as mentioned above and described below :

• cost : It specifies the initial cost of the asset.
• salvage : It specifies the value of the asset at the end of its useful life.
• life : It specifies the length of the useful life of the asset.
• period : It specifies period for which asset depreciation is calculated.
• factor : It specifies rate at which the balance declines. If omitted, 2 (double-declining method) is assumed.

Returns : It returns depreciation of an asset for a specific time period.

Note : The depreciation period must be expressed in the same unit as the life argument. All arguments must be positive numbers.

Example-1 :
Depreciation for an asset with a salvage value of 15% considering the useful life of the asset to be 10 years and depreciation is calculated for 2nd year.

`SELECT DDB(1500.0, 1500.0*0.15, 10, 2) AS Amount;`

Output :

Amount
240

Example-2 :
Depreciation for a table of an asset with a salvage value of 10% considering the useful life to be 15 years and depreciation is calculated for 3rd year.

```SELECT DDB([LoanAmount], [LoanAmount]*.1, 15, 3) AS Amt
FROM Accounts;```

Output :

1201.77777777778

2. FV() Function :
FV() Function in MS Access is used to calculate the Future Value of an annuity based on periodic, fixed payments and a fixed interest rate. An annuity is a series of fixed cash payments made over a period of time. An annuity can be a loan or an investment.

Syntax :

`FV(rate, nper, pmt, pv , type)`

Parameter : This method accepts five parameters as mentioned above and described below :

• rate : It specifies interest rate per period.
• nper : It specifies total number of payment periods in the annuity.
• pmt : It specifies payment to be made each period. Payments usually contain principal and interest that does not change over the life of the annuity.
• pv : Optional. It specifies the present value (or lump sum) of a series of future payments.
• type : It specifies when payments are due. Use 0 if payments are due at the end of the payment period, or use 1 if payments are due at the beginning of the period.

Returns : It returns future value of an annuity.

Note : The rate and nper arguments must be calculated using payment periods expressed in the same units. For example, if rate is calculated using months, nper must also be calculated using months.cash paid out (such as deposits to savings) is represented by negative numbers; cash received (such as dividend checks) is represented by positive numbers.

Example-1 :
Calculating the Future Value of the “LoanAmount 1000” based on the 6 % AnnualRate, “MonthlyRePayment 2 time” and “Payment made each period 50”.

`SELECT FV(0.06/12, 2*12, -50, 1000, 0) AS FutureValue ;`

Output :

FutureValue
144.4379858485

Example-2 :
Calculating the Future Value of the loan amount table based on the 6 % AnnualRate, “MonthlyRePayment 1 time” and “Payment made each period 100”.
