I have just discovered speak cells in Excel which i will find very useful, I have however found an issue. I have a worksheet with numbers that exceed 1 million. The cells are formatted to show £, thousand separator and 2 decimal places. Using speak cells is fine for anything under 1 million and she says just the numbers (£345.00 = Three hundred and forty five) but anything over 1 million she speaks the currency, commas and decimal places (£1,253,450.00 = Pound one comma two five three comma four fifty dot zero zero. Its very annoying, any advice would be very much appreciated. TIA

Try speaking the text of the cell instead of the value.
Application.Speech.Speak Range("A1").Text

Sorry. Out of my scope. I am not getting the same results on my system. Can you share your workbook?

Surely the code is asking for it to be spoken as text therefore it will not be spoken as a value which is what i want.

Hello Keeshslow,

Adding a formatting rule may help (other than this, I'm not sure what else can be done):-

VBA Code:
Sub Test()
Application.Speech.Speak (Format(Range("A1"), "$#,##0.00"))
End Sub

Just change the "$" symbol to suit your currency.

I hope that this helps.

Cheerio,
vcoolio.

Thanks for the suggestions guys but i'm not getting the result i'm after. The only way is to format the cells as just numbers without the separators and currency.
Thanks anyways
