For example, the function will return the following words for the number 1234.56: One Thousand Two Hundred Thirty Four Dollars And Fifty Six Cents

The Function Wizard can also be used to enter a custom function in a worksheet. To use the Function Wizard, follow these steps:

1. Click the Function Wizard button, and select User Defined under Function Category.
2. Select ConvertCurrencyToEnglish, and enter your number or cell reference.

To Create the Sample Functions

1. Insert a module sheet into a workbook. To do this in Microsoft Excel 97 or Microsoft Excel 98, point to Macro on the Tools menu, and then click Visual Basic Editor. In the Visual Basic Editor, click Module on the Insert menu. In Microsoft Excel 5.0 or 7.0, point to Macro on the Insert menu and click Module.

2. Type the following code into the module sheet.

         If DecimalPlace > 0 Then

            Temp = Left(Mid(MyNumber, DecimalPlace + 1) & "00", 2)

            Cents = ConvertTens(Temp)



            ' Strip off cents from remainder to convert.
