# spell out numbers (part II)

Posted by Amy Wheeler on September 17, 2001 9:43 AM

I saw the responses regarding this question, and when I when to the other hits, it changed a number to text (but using currency) i.e. 15 became fifteen dollars and zero cents.

What I am looking for is "fifteen" excluding the dollars and cents.

Thanks!
Amy

This one has a check box for with or without the monetary units

otherwise you could strip it with formula like
=LEFT(B2,LEN(B2)-20)
if the monetary result is in B2.

Amy, you could try out this User-Defined Function (courtesy of Alan Barasch's web site - http://www.barasch.com/excel/numb2words.htm - with some changes made by myself).

One more change (I think this is it!!)

Amy, insert

MyNumber = Trim(Left(MyNumber, DecimalPlace - 1))

right after

Cents = Cents & Temp
End If

Sorry for the problems (I really shouldn't rush).
