DDB(cost, salvage, life, period [,factor])

Returns the depreciation of an asset over a period of time (Double).

costThe initial cost of the asset (Double).
salvageThe value at the end of its useful life (Double).
lifeThe length of useful life of the asset (Double).
periodThe period you want to calculate the depreciation over (Double).
factor(Optional) The rate at which the balance declines (Integer).

* The "cost", "salvage", "life, "period" and "factor" must all be positive numbers.
* The "life" and "period" arguments must be expressed in the same units (days, months, years).
* If "factor" = 1, then ??
* If "factor" = 2, then the double declining balance method is used.
* If "factor" is left blank, then 2 is used.
* The double declining balance method computes depreciation at an accelerated rate. Depreciation is highest in the first period and decreases in successive periods.
* The equivalent Excel function is Application.WorksheetFunction.DDB
* The equivalent .NET function is Microsoft.VisualBasic.Financial.DDB
