    I personally have not used this function, but the FV or Future Values formula may help with this.

    See the attached workbook.

    Re 2/3: the end values are not realistic. The total amount you invest is 15 (years) * 12 (months) * $100 (amount) = $18,000. You can't expect to get $250,000 or $300,000. Scrap one zero.

    Thanks Hans. You're right, the end values are not realistic and were not intended to be... just for example. However, I am receptive to hearing about such investments should you become aware of one.
