# Converting digits into words.

Hi

We usually use various statments in XL and arrive at a net figure. I want the result to be represented in words.

For ex : if I have 10,999.99

The word column should show

ten thousand nine hundred and ninety nine and paise ninety nine only.

I am sure one of this team would have done a macro for this... Pls. share...

Code:

### Excel Facts

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

I use a macro by Legare Coleman

Here is what I use, it works for up to Sextllions. It will also give you something like
'Three Hundred Thirty Dollars and Sixty Seven Cents if you pass it the optional second and third parameters. like this:

'=NumberToText(330.67,"Dollars","Cents")

' (c) Legare Coleman

Public Function NumberToText(Num As Variant, Optional vCurName As Variant, Optional vCent As Variant) As Variant
Dim TMBT As Variant

Dim Result As String, sCurName As String, sCent As String

If Application.IsNumber(Num) = False Then
NumberToText = CVErr(xlValue)
Exit Function
End If

If IsMissing(vCurName) Then
sCurName = ""
Else
sCurName = Trim(CStr(vCurName))
End If
If IsMissing(vCent) Then
sCent = ""
Else
sCent = Trim(CStr(vCent))
End If

TMBT = Array("", "Thousand", "Million", "Billion", "Trillion", "Quadrillion", "Quintillion", "Sextillion")

If IsMissing(sCent) Or IsNull(sCent) Then
sNum = Format(Application.Round(Num, 0), "0")
Else
sNum = Format(Application.Round(Num, 2), "0.00")
sDec = Right(sNum, 2)
sNum = Left(sNum, Len(sNum) - 3)

End If
IC = IC + 1
Wend
Result = Trim(Result & " " & sCurName)
Result = Trim(Result & " " & sDec)

NumberToText = Result

End Function

Private Function HundredsToText(Num As Integer) As String
