Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2248) Parameterdefinitions for financial functions are spread across those functions andare inconsistent

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2248?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16777#action_16777 ] 

Patrick Durusau commented on OFFICE-2248:

After posting this comment, the thought did occur to me that where the definitions of parameters change, it may be possible to group functions that share a particular set of definitions? Allows the use of varying definitions but at the same time avoids the issue of repeating definitions and risking them being read inconsistently. 

Having consistent definitions where they do mean the same thing would still be the first step in that process should the group think that would be a useful approach.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: OpenFormula
>    Affects Versions: ODF 1.2
>            Reporter: Patrick Durusau
> Some but not all of the financial functions have parameters reported as part of their definitions.
> Those parameters reflect different wordings for the same parameters. To illustrate, between 15.12.2 and 15.12.23 we find (not all cases reported):
> 15.12.2 settlement	The security's settlement date.
> 15.12.3 settlement	The security's maturity date.
> 15.12.8 settlement	The settlement date.
> 15.12.16 settlement	The settlement date of the security.
> 15.12.23 Settlement: the date of purchase of the security.
> I suspect that 2, 8, 16 and 23 all have the same meaning but I would be hard pressed to swear to it. 
> There are two aspects to this issue: 
> 1) The same parameters are repeated, often with slightly different wordings for the same meaning. 
> 2) The parameters are presented differently, compare 15.12.16 with 15.12.19 for example.
