Workflow created for the KNIME forum ... https://forum.knime.com/t/r-script-calculate-npv-irr-and-xnpv-xirr-workflows/37634 DESCRIPTION: The challenge in this project was to calculate in KNIME, XNPV and XIRR for spaced cash flows; these incomes do not need to occur at regular intervals, then a time vector reference is needed. R Script is the approach selected for this challenge, by using the R jrvFinance packace's algorithms. The code is not sensitive to column names; however the second column feeding the 'Tabe to R' has to be Time in 'Decimal Years' (Numeric), and 'Dates' has to be placed in the first column. "This R package implements the basic financial analysis functions similar to (but not identical to) what is available in most spreadsheet software." (Jayanth Varma @ https://github.com/jrvarma/jrvFinance) A cross-check of the workflow results vs function implemented in Google Sheets is available at Links section in this description; returning a XNPV difference in the range of ~10E-4. These differences may occur because of the Time conversion. For any comment or bug realted to the workflow, please do not hesitate to leave your comment.
