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.
Function ConvertCurrencyToEnglish (ByVal MyNumber) Dim Temp Dim Dollars, Cents Dim DecimalPlace, Count ReDim Place(9) As String Place(2) = " Thousand " Place(3) = " Million " Place(4) = " Billion " Place(5) = " Trillion " ' Convert MyNumber to a string, trimming extra spaces. MyNumber = Trim(Str(MyNumber)) ' Find decimal place. DecimalPlace = InStr(MyNumber, ".") ' If we find decimal place... If DecimalPlace > 0 Then ' Convert cents Temp = Left(Mid(MyNumber, DecimalPlace + 1) & "00", 2) Cents = ConvertTens(Temp) ' Strip off cents from remainder to convert. MyNumber = Trim(Left(MyNumber, DecimalPlace  1)) End If Count = 1 Do While MyNumber <> "" ' Convert last 3 digits of MyNumber to English dollars. Temp = ConvertHundreds(Right(MyNumber, 3)) If Temp <> "" Then Dollars = Temp & Place(Count) & Dollars If Len(MyNumber) > 3 Then ' Remove last 3 converted digits from MyNumber. MyNumber = Left(MyNumber, Len(MyNumber)  3) Else MyNumber = "" End If Count = Count + 1 Loop ' Clean up dollars. Select Case Dollars Case "" Dollars = "No Dollars" Case "One" Dollars = "One Dollar" Case Else Dollars = Dollars & " Dollars" End Select ' Clean up cents. Select Case Cents Case "" Cents = " And No Cents" Case "One" Cents = " And One Cent" Case Else Cents = " And " & Cents & " Cents" End Select ConvertCurrencyToEnglish = Dollars & Cents End Function Private Function ConvertHundreds (ByVal MyNumber) Dim Result As String ' Exit if there is nothing to convert. If Val(MyNumber) = 0 Then Exit Function ' Append leading zeros to number. MyNumber = Right("000" & MyNumber, 3) ' Do we have a hundreds place digit to convert? If Left(MyNumber, 1) <> "0" Then Result = ConvertDigit(Left(MyNumber, 1)) & " Hundred " End If ' Do we have a tens place digit to convert? If Mid(MyNumber, 2, 1) <> "0" Then Result = Result & ConvertTens(Mid(MyNumber, 2)) Else ' If not, then convert the ones place digit. Result = Result & ConvertDigit(Mid(MyNumber, 3)) End If ConvertHundreds = Trim(Result) End Function Private Function ConvertTens (ByVal MyTens) Dim Result As String ' Is value between 10 and 19? If Val(Left(MyTens, 1)) = 1 Then Select Case Val(MyTens) Case 10: Result = "Ten" Case 11: Result = "Eleven" Case 12: Result = "Twelve" Case 13: Result = "Thirteen" Case 14: Result = "Fourteen" Case 15: Result = "Fifteen" Case 16: Result = "Sixteen" Case 17: Result = "Seventeen" Case 18: Result = "Eighteen" Case 19: Result = "Nineteen" Case Else End Select Else ' .. otherwise it's between 20 and 99. Select Case Val(Left(MyTens, 1)) Case 2: Result = "Twenty " Case 3: Result = "Thirty " Case 4: Result = "Forty " Case 5: Result = "Fifty " Case 6: Result = "Sixty " Case 7: Result = "Seventy " Case 8: Result = "Eighty " Case 9: Result = "Ninety " Case Else End Select ' Convert ones place digit. Result = Result & ConvertDigit(Right(MyTens, 1)) End If ConvertTens = Result End Function Private Function ConvertDigit (ByVal MyDigit) Select Case Val(MyDigit) Case 1: ConvertDigit = "One" Case 2: ConvertDigit = "Two" Case 3: ConvertDigit = "Three" Case 4: ConvertDigit = "Four" Case 5: ConvertDigit = "Five" Case 6: ConvertDigit = "Six" Case 7: ConvertDigit = "Seven" Case 8: ConvertDigit = "Eight" Case 9: ConvertDigit = "Nine" Case Else: ConvertDigit = "" End Select End Function
