Syntax for CUMPRINC Function
=CUMPRINC(rate, nper, pv, start_period, end_period, type)
Rate: Required. The interest rate.
Nper: Required. The total number of payment periods.
Pv: Required. The present value.
Start_period: Required. The first period in the calculation. Payment periods are numbered beginning with 1.

Units for rate and nper must be consistent. Use N%/12 for rate and N*12 for nper in the case of monthly payments, N%/4 for rate and N*4 for nper in the case of quarterly payments, N% for rate and N for nper in the case of annual payments.
We have created the infographics for the CUMPRINC Function. With the help of these infographics, you can easily learn step by step process for using this excel functions.
Furthermore, Excel consists of many inbuilt functions which are helpful in the analytical and statistical study of number.
Simply follow the instructions in the infographics below:
#NUM! error occurs for following reasons:
1. The supplied start_period or end_period is ≤0 or is > nper.
2. The supplied start_period > end_period.
3. Any of the supplied rates, nper or pv arguments are ≤ 0.
4. The supplied type argument is not equal to 0 or 1.
#VALUE! error occurs when any of the supplied arguments are not recognized as numeric values.
Generally, while calculating monthly or quarterly payments, many users forget to convert annual interest rates or the number of periods to months or quarters.
Thus, to solve this problem you must ensure that the rate and the nper arguments are expressed in the correct units.
