When using the Zero Discount Factors transfer pricing method, the interpolated rate from the Interest Rate curve does not match the rate output to Financial Element (FE) 437 in FSI_O_PROCESS_CASH_FLOWS.

For example:

The Interest Rate Code (IRC) has the following values:
30 Days: 2.3699
60 Days: 2.4718

The first cash flow term (Next Payment Date - Last Payment Date) is 31 Days so you expect FE 437 to be calculated as follows using linear interpolation:

[[(y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1)] * 31] + [y1 - [(y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1)] * x1]
[[(60 - 30)/(2.4718 - 2.3699)] * 31] + [2.3699 - [(60 - 30)/(2.4718 - 2.3699)] * 60]

The result is 2.3733 but FE 437 has a value of 2.4045.

You do not understand why the calculated rate does not match FE 437.
