Amount or Numbers in Words

Hi,

Thanks for the two replies. However I found out that excel spells fifty
cents - and fifty cents only, is there any way I can remove the word "and".
Also, will it be possible to spell 1234.56 to One thousand two hundred thirty
four and cents fifty six only? I have to do in this format dur to cheques.
Thanks again.

Ron,

First check the following MS Excel article at:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q213360/

You don't have to be familiar with writing VBA code. Just copy the code
below and follow the instructions above the code field in the MS article
using standard copy and paste functions (Ctrl-C; Ctrl-V). Don't be
intimidated; it's no sweat. Save the file. Then go back to your worksheet
and type into the desired cell the formula =SpellNumber(xxx.xx). It will
spell out the text of that number. You can also use the function
=SpellNumber(XN), where (XN) is a cell containing a number in standard
format.

I've modified MS' VBA code given in the article to do what I THINK you're
asking such that \$1234.56 results in One thousand two hundred thirty four
fifty six. Did you want to put "Cents" ahead of the .56? If so, that can
also be done.

Note: the original lines in the MS VBA code for this function that were
modified are preceded by a hyphen (') and have been left in the code but are
not active.

Let me know. Any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Regards,

PJF

BTW, the instructions from MS say to "type in" the code. That's not
necessary. Just copy and paste the code in the VBA module.

Hi PJF,

Really want to thank you for your suggested formula. I need the spellnumber
formula to be:
1234.56 = One thousand thirty four and cents fifty six only
1234 = One thousand two hundred and thirty four only
123= One hundred and twenty three
0.12= Cents twelve only

will that be possible becoz the "and" word is at different places all the
time depending on the figure. The cents needs to be before the amount e.g
1234.56 = One thousand thirty four and cents fifty six only instead of behind
the 56.
Really thank you very much. Will be glad if you could help cos I will need
the formula very frequently in my workplace. Thanks in adv again.

Ron,

I'll work on modifying the code to see if I can get it to provide the
several formats the way you need them. Since I'm solidly snowed in, you
caught me at the right time! <g Give me a day or two.

Happy holidays to you.

Ron,

You sent me the following combos:

1234.56 = One thousand thirty four and cents fifty six only
1234 = One thousand two hundred and thirty four only
123= One hundred and twenty three
0.12= Cents twelve only

Should there be an "only" after the 123?
