 Posted - 10/16/2012 :  10:33:38 Hi,This is an excel formula:=IF(1276<300, "NA",((34.45/100+1)^(300/1276)-1)*100)How can I translate it to sql with power function please?My main issue is that I can not get the power in sql to basically give the same answer as((34.45/100+1)^(300/1276)-1)*100The answer should be 7.21Thanks Edited by - arkiboys on 10/16/2012 10:37:13
