# Converting dollar amount to letters

I would like to convert (3.95) to say "CIE", is something like this possible. I'm wanting to create labels for items, but not have dollar amount on label. Prefer some sort of code.

### Excel Facts

Round to nearest half hour?
Use =MROUND(A2,"0:30") to round to nearest half hour. Use =CEILING(A2,"0:30") to round to next half hour.

You mean convert the numbers to letters

so 3 = C
9 = I &
5 = E ?

You did not tell us what the digit 0 should be converted to, so I assumed the letter Z. Here is a function that will do the conversion, but it important to note that the number should be a text values when passed into the function so that trailing zeroes are not lost.

Code:
``````Function NumbersToLetters(S As String) As String
Dim X As Long
NumbersToLetters = Replace(Replace(S, ".", ""), ",", "")
For X = 1 To Len(NumbersToLetters)
Mid(NumbersToLetters, X, 1) = Replace(Chr(64 + Mid(NumbersToLetters, X, 1)), "@", "Z")
Next
End Function``````

Rick, thank you for the quick response. Can you please be more explicit? If I have a column (column A) of dollar values in the cells, let's say in next column (B) what is the formula I would use to convert column A dollar values to letters? Sorry for being so naive.

Here are the instruction for installing and using a UDF (user defined function)...

HOW TO INSTALL UDFs
------------------------------------
If you are new to UDFs, they are easy to install and use. To install it, simply press ALT+F11 to go into the VB editor and, once there, click Insert/Module on its menu bar, then copy/paste the above code into the code window that just opened up. That's it.... you are done. You can now use NumbersToLetters just like it was a built-in Excel function. For example,

=NumbersToLetters(A1)

If you are using XL2007 or above, make sure you save your file as an "Excel Macro-Enabled Workbook (*.xlsm) and answer the "do you want to enable macros" question as "yes" or "OK" (depending on the button label for your version of Excel) the next time you open your workbook.
