  Sample output:
38.55

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Used to calculate the Present Value of a single future value - eg how much in todays money is a future amount given a certain rate of interest (the discount rate)

The FMPro version only calculates the PV of a future income stream hence the need for this function
