Good Day to everyone!
I Have researched this Forum and found the answer i was looking for.
I am attmepting to create the "SpellNumber" Function to change Numbers into text.
It almost worked. when I use the macro I get an error message

Compile Error:
Sub or Function not defined

About halfway down through the code in the area
' converts a number from 100-999 into text
seven lines below that the "getDigit" is highlighted.

What does this mean?
How do I fix?

any information is helpful
Thank you

Excel VBA appears to be looking for a sub/function called getDigit.

Do you actually have a function/sub called getDigit in your code?

Can you post the code you have?

Yes I can, I think so.
This is what I have typed

' converts a number from 100-999 into text
function GetHundreds(ByVal MyNumber)
Dim Result As String
If Val(MyNumber) = 0 Then Exit Function
MyNumber = Right("000" & MyNumber, 3)
' Convert the hundreds place.
If Mid(MyNumber, 1, 1) <> "0" Then
Result = GetDigit(Mid(MyNumber, 1 1)) & " Hundred "
End If
' Convert the tens and the ones place.
If Mid(MyNumber, 2 1) <> "0" Then
Result = Result & GetTens(Mid(MyNumber, 2))
Else
Result = Result & GetDigit(Mid(MyNumber, 3 ))
End If
Get Hundreds = Result
End Function

I hope this is what you're looking for.
Thank You,

Is that all the code?

Where are the GetDigit and GetTens functions?

Here is the UDF for converting number into text


Option Explicit

Dim Dollars, Cents, Temp

ReDim Place(9) As String
Place(2) = " Thousand "
Place(3) = " Million "

Place(5) = " Trillion "

' String representation of amount.
MyNumber = Trim(Str(MyNumber))

' Position of decimal place 0 if none.
DecimalPlace = InStr(MyNumber, ".")
' Convert cents and set MyNumber to dollar amount.
If DecimalPlace > 0 Then
Cents = GetTens(Left(Mid(MyNumber, DecimalPlace + 1) & "00", 2))
MyNumber = Trim(Left(MyNumber, DecimalPlace - 1))
End If

Count = 1
Do While MyNumber <> ""
Temp = GetHundreds(Right(MyNumber, 3))
If Temp <> "" Then Dollars = Temp & Place(Count) & Dollars
If Len(MyNumber) > 3 Then
MyNumber = Left(MyNumber, Len(MyNumber) - 3)
Else
MyNumber = ""
End If
Count = Count + 1
Loop

Select Case Dollars
Case ""
Dollars = "No Dollars"
Case "One"
Dollars = "One Dollar"

End If

Result = Result & GetTens(Mid(MyNumber, 2))
Else
Result = Result & GetDigit(Mid(MyNumber, 3))
End If

GetHundreds = Result
End Function
