(1) General. Do you think a link to Wikipedia’s page entitled “Tick size” would be worthwhile?
(2) Summary. Suggest replacing with the following “Some security prices are quoted in a fractional representation, to the nearest 1/32, 1/16, etc. For example, if the fractional unit used is 1/32, a quote of 99.05 means 99 plus 5/32 (or 99.16 in decimal). DOLLARDE converts a number in this fractional representation to a decimal number.”
(3) Returns. Suggest replacing with the following – “Returns a real number which is the decimal equivalent of a given number in fractional representation, with a specified fractional unit.”.
(4) Arguments, Fraction. Change “whole number” to “integer”.
(5) Arguments, 2nd bullet. Delete 2nd sentence.
(6) Additional details. Is it worth mentioning that DOLLARFR performs the opposite conversion?
(7) Examples, general. It would be good to have an example that shows how =DOLLARDE(1.2; 16) gives 2.25.
(8) Examples, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd examples. Suggest change “as a decimal fraction” into “in a fractional representation”.
(9) Examples, 3rd example. Change “for 1” to “for -1”.
