How to calculate Chaikin Money Flow

I'm trying to calculate Chaikin Money flow class but unable to match result with excel calculation, can someone help me here :

Money Flow Multiplier = [(Close  Low)  (High  Close)] /(High  Low)

Money Flow Volume = Money Flow Multiplier x Volume for the Period

20period CMF = 20period Sum of Money Flow Volume / 20 period Sum of Volume
def __init__(self): # Let the indicator get enough data self.addminperiod(self.p.len) # Aliases to avoid long lines c = self.data.close h = self.data.high l = self.data.low v = self.data.volume self.data.ad = ((((c  l)  (h  c)) / (h  l) ) * v) self.lines.money_flow = bt.indicators.SumN(self.data.ad, period=self.p.len) / bt.indicators.SumN( self.data.volume, period=self.p.len)
final calculation is different from excel calculation. Can any one pls help here.

That's not needed and it will probably hurt. But without knowing how and when the values differ ...
