You will get a #Num! error if the function returns a result greater than 10^307.
In your cash flow, change some of the cash flow to negative values, you will notice the change in the result.
e.g. if you change the B2 value from 237144.43 to -237144.43, you will get a result.

if change in cash flow then result would be not perfect ......seems XIRR function is not up to the mark....i have to search for some other method ....i am trying to calculate CAGR return from that Cash flow ...last cell B 19 is current portfolio value of client and above all is cash flow since inception ...do you have any other formula in mind to calculate CAGR from cash flow ?

Thanks

Sorry I don't deal much with financial calculations.

BTE go through the following link, maybe you would get a starting point.
https://www.extendoffice.com/documents/excel/2596-excel-average-compound-growth-rate.html

Based on the formula described on that site, you may use something like this...
=((B19/B2)^(DATEDIF(A2,A19,"m")+1-1))-1

Hi,

the xirr function cannot work since you do not have an investment ( - amount) in col B as first element
the end value should also be positive in you case (Sep 1)
