# Thread: Compound Interest Only (Excel 2000)

1. ## Compound Interest Only (Excel 2000)

If I invest 50 for 10 years at 5% interest rate and receive a final amount on that investment of 77641.14, and stop contributing to that investment, how would I find the interest on that money left sitting there on a yearly basis? I am compounding the remaining 77641.44 only, with no more investing.
Thanks

Nannette, you can still use FV to do the calculation, just set the payment to zero. For example, assuming yearly compounding, if A1 has the number of years, then <pre>=-FV(0.05,A1,0,77641.14)</pre>

gives the future value. HTH --Sam
