1. ## Help - Numbers to Words..

Hi,

What function can return the number in word form? Example A1 is 540. Then I write in B1 =FUNCTIONHERE(A1) then it will return "Five Hundred Forty" without the quote.
I want to use this in creating the invoices of the company where the total is written both in numeric and word form.

Thank you very much,
Peter

2. You need a UDF (user defined function) to do the trick.
This is a UDF from the website of Ozgrid. Open your Excel hit Alt + F11, then from the "Insert" menu, click on "Module" and paste the code below.
Then in your worksheet type =SpellNumber(A1).

Hope that helps.

Code:
```'****************      ' Main Function *  '****************
Function SpellNumber(ByVal MyNumber)
Dim Dollars, Cents, Temp
Dim DecimalPlace, Count
ReDim Place(9) As String
Place(2) = " Thousand "
Place(3) = " Million "
Place(4) = " Billion "
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
