Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Created: (OFFICE-2704) ACCRINT description isinconsistent

ACCRINT description is inconsistent

                 Key: OFFICE-2704
                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2704
             Project: OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: OpenFormula
    Affects Versions: ODF 1.2 CD 05
            Reporter: Andreas Guelzow 

The description of ACCRINT has several issues:

1) The constraint is given as: issue < first < settlement ; coupon > 0; par > 0. OOo and Excel clearly permit settlement<first and most examples on the web seem to be of that kind.

2) The short description of calc_method reads "A logical value that specifies how to treat the case where settlement>first." which seems to imply that there is a permitted case where settlement > first does not hold.

3) The formula given contains the undefined  variables start-of-period and end-of-period. Especially in view of the statement "ACCRINT
supports short, standard, and long coupon periods.", it is not clear what those values are.

4) If the constraint is changed, a formula for the settlement < first case is needed.
