Need to convert numbers to text

  • Looking for a way to have a cell linked to another display the number in text


    Ex


    a2=a1


    a1= $950.00
    I need a2 to display Nine Hundred Fifty

  • I don't have time to work it out right now, but you would have to parse out your number by each digit position (or pair of digits) then chain a number of index() lookups against a table like this.


    Hopefully someone has a simpler solution? :question: :)



    0 zero
    1 one ten
    2 two twenty
    3 three thirty
    4 four forty
    5 five fifty
    6 six sixty
    7 seven seventy
    8 eight eighty
    9 nine ninety
    10 ten
    11 eleven
    12 twelve
    13 thirteen
    14 fourteen
    15 fifteen
    16 sixteen
    17 sventeen
    18 eighteen
    19 nineteen

  • Downloaded the utility, but it does say convert numbers to text format, but does not actually write the number out.


    It just changes the format as if I had gone into excel number format and switched from number to currency or general.


    But looks like a good utility..thanks for the link.

  • John Walkenbach (Excel 2000 Formulas) includes a SPELLDOLLARS function (in VBA) that would work for currency. (Rather long to type out). There is a copy of it on the accompanying CD.
