Hi Susan,
I try the code - it works just perfect (thanks to BJungheim
and Hotpepper) so what you must do:
1. open visual basic - from Tools>Macro>Visual Basic Editor
2. Right click on your project (par Example VBA Project(Book1.xls))
3. from the drop down menu choose Insert>Module
4. copy all code below and save
5. Turn back to xls
6. in one cell you have got the number (par example in cell A1 you have 1358) and in second one you want to see the number in text (so in B1 you want to see "one thousand three hundred fifty eight") In cell B1 click Insert>Function
7. choose "User Defined" and find SpellNumber
8. in the box you must enter A1. press Enter
Is that OK now? I hope that i helped you
