Hi Vasu,

If you are looking for an Indian style, here is a UDF from Yogi Anand.

VB:
```Function SpellIndian(ByVal MyNumber)

'**** ySpellRupees (on 20-Nov-2002)
'**** Excel UDF to spell Indian Currency -- Rupees and Paise into text
'**** Indian currency starts off with 1000s, and after that only with 100s
'**** 1000 (Thousand) -- 1,00,000 (Lac or Lakh) -- 1,00,00,000 (Crore) -- 1,00,00,00,000 (Arab)

VASUDEVAN

The code/links supplied will do that.

Have you tried any of the suggestions?

Make sure you copy the code of Microsoft that Dave supplied you into a module into VBA. That code essentially is a function that the user - you! - learn to Excel. Its name is SpellNumber.

Then, in your worksheet, you use:

=SpellNumber(sum(A1:A4))

in cell A5.

Variations in terms of code, nesting functions, ... are of course possible.

## Re: Write a number in words

Can you help in enabling macros in the sheet.
As the function is working just fine, however whenever the file is edited the function breaks and gives error.
Also whenever i open the file freshly. The function breaks and no results are shown.

Error shown is #NAME?

Please help as im in process in developing a invoice and billing system for my small company.
