hi I wanted to get a financial program for my DM42 but I can't seem to get it to work. I installed the mort.raw file and when I run it with XEQ this is the steps I take:
0 [FV]
1000 [PV]
.03
36 [N]
[PMT]

nothing happens, if I press[PMT] again it says nonexistent

If I try to use solver and enter the data the sameway it doesn't work either.

how do I use this program or is there an easier one?

I tried the program, and it works for me. I assume that your .03 entry is for the interest . Try entering 0 for [DUE]. Using your values and pushing [PMT] twice, I get the result 45.80379418 in the X-register, which agrees with my HP 12C.

That worked for me. The having to push PMT twice is odd to me, though.

It is necessary to press the key twice to invoke the solver. This is to differentiate between storing a value in a variable (one key push), and solving for that variable (two key pushes).

It is a setting to determine if payments are to be made at the end of a payment period (arrears), in which case DUE=0, or if they are made at the beginning of a payment period when due, in which case DUE=1. When payments are made when due, they are lower, since no interest will accrue during that period on the current unpaid balance. In this case, with DUE=0, then PMT=45.8037941842, whereas if DUE=1, then PMT=44.4697030914.
