While using ALM for generating contractual cash flow only, there are several questions on how to populate the data fields for bonds:

Question 1: The interest in bonds is usually calculated on a simple interest basis. In such case, what should be the value for n_compounding_freq? Can this be left NULL?
Question 2: What should the value be for n_amrt_term (Amortization Term) for non-amortizing instruments?
Question 3: What is the difference between product code and product type code?
Question 4: Is the n_cur_payment field in stage investments a mandatory field? Is this the last payment amount received?  If this field is not populated, will it break the cash flow calculations?
Question 5: Is the N_AMOUNT_P field required for cash flow generation?
Question 6: What is the maturity date for non-term instruments? Is it FIC MIS Date + 1?
Question 7: How is the v_repayment_type different from amrt_type_cd? Is this field required for contractual cash flow generation?
Question 8: How is the Account Closed Indicator (f_closed_ind) field used in contractual cash flow generation?
Question 9: Can the V_NET_MARGIN_CD (Loan table) field be left NULL or should a default value of 0 be used?
Question 10: Current plans are to model the forecasted Euribor on the fixing date. How is the fixing date captured in STG_IRC_RATE_HIST table?
Question 11: What is the purpose of effective date in STG_IRC_RATE_HIST table? Is it mandatory field?
