You'll find that, by and large, broker-calculated yields are close enough. But that, occasionally, what they are reporting is far different than what Excel suggests. Therefore, running your own numbers should become a part of your due-diligence.

Also, once the offering-list has been imported into Excel, a yield-curve can be built.
