# why my ssum didn't accumlate previous sum in FCMP?

I defined a function in fcmp, use ssum to accumulate previous result, initial value is 0, but it didn't take any effect.

When you run the data step in following code, the unsifted_t is the same as unshifed, but it should be same as unshifted_spot_result.

I really need this function to go through other variables.

data unshifted_t;

input

Years

Unshifted Unshifted_spot_result;

cards;

## why my ssum didn't accumlate previous sum in FCMP?

You are not letting your function loop as you are expecting.  By having the return function inside your do loop you are cuaseing it to prematurely end the computation.

I may have made a mistake but the logic inside the code is set to return 0 for an input of 0 so you may have some logic issues, take a look at your definition of llatest which will always resolve to the same value.

It also looks like a NPV or bi-annual interest accumulation function and there should be a closed form or some other SAS function that might get you there easier.

I agree with Reeza that the function itself does not appear to have a purpose.  The return value will always equal the input value because of the mathmatical logic employed.  Since I am unaware of what you are attempting to calculate I chose to just point out the syntactical error in your function, but you should probably consider also checking your calculations logic as well.

how do I fix it then? retain statement has no effect in the fcmp function.

Reeza, it does look like a NPV issue, but it is acutally bootstrapping the zero curve rate.

I believe the zero-coupon yield curve can be calculated using the yieldp function.

# YIELDP Function

Returns the yield-to-maturity for a periodic cash flow stream, such as a bond.
