Is there a way or formula to convert dollar figures into words ?

For eg,

convert 2100.5 into "Two thousand one hundred and fifty cents" ??

Select the data and press Alt+F1 to insert a default chart. You can change the default chart to any chart type

If you do a board search, someone came up with some pretty cool code to do just that. Search along the lines of "numbers to text" and you'll likely find it, although I'll see if I can.

HTH,

Smitty

Thanks.

If you want an addin that provides a worksheet function that does this,

It is downloaded in a zip file which also contains an informative file in
'hlp' format that describes the 33 or so very useful functions included, one
of which does the number to words conversion you describe (supports various
languages and currencies).

This file might be a help:

It's in the "Accountants" section on page:
http://www.bygsoftware.com/examples/examples.htm
It contains two methods to convert numbers to words and two check writing
routines.

The code is open and commented.

And, finally:
