Re: how to convert number into words

I'd say you need to create a table (mapping table) with two columns:

Num, Text

1, One

2, Two

3, Three

etc.

Then use Applymap() to convert your number field to text.

Re: how to convert number into words

Hello Pranav,

The standard logic (implemented here in VB) is :

...............................................

Option Explicit

'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

        If Len(MyNumber) > 3 Then

            MyNumber = Left(MyNumber, Len(MyNumber) - 3)

        Else

            MyNumber = ""

        End If

        Count = Count + 1

    Loop

    Select Case Dollars

        Case ""

            Dollars = "No Dollars"

        Case "One"

            Dollars = "One Dollar"

         Case Else

            Dollars = Dollars & " Dollars"

    End Select

    Select Case Cents

        Case ""

            Cents = " and No Cents"

        Case "One"

            Cents = " and One Cent"

              Case Else

            Cents = " and " & Cents & " Cents"

    End Select

    SpellNumber = Dollars & Cents

End Function

' Converts a number from 100-999 into text

Function GetHundreds(ByVal MyNumber)

    Dim Result As String

    If Val(MyNumber) = 0 Then Exit Function

    MyNumber = Right("000" & MyNumber, 3)

    ' Convert the hundreds place.

    If Mid(MyNumber, 1, 1) <> "0" Then

        Result = GetDigit(Mid(MyNumber, 1, 1)) & " Hundred "

    End If

    ' Convert the tens and ones place.

    If Mid(MyNumber, 2, 1) <> "0" Then

        Result = Result & GetTens(Mid(MyNumber, 2))

    Else

        Result = Result & GetDigit(Mid(MyNumber, 3))

    End If

    GetHundreds = Result

End Function

' Converts a number from 10 to 99 into text.

Function GetTens(TensText)

    Dim Result As String

    Result = ""           ' Null out the temporary function value.

    If Val(Left(TensText, 1)) = 1 Then   ' If value between 10-19...

        Select Case Val(TensText)

            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                                 ' If value between 20-99...

        Select Case Val(Left(TensText, 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

        Result = Result & GetDigit _

            (Right(TensText, 1))  ' Retrieve ones place.

    End If

    GetTens = Result

End Function

' Converts a number from 1 to 9 into text.

Function GetDigit(Digit)

    Select Case Val(Digit)

        Case 1: GetDigit = "One"

        Case 2: GetDigit = "Two"

        Case 3: GetDigit = "Three"

        Case 4: GetDigit = "Four"

        Case 5: GetDigit = "Five"

        Case 6: GetDigit = "Six"

        Case 7: GetDigit = "Seven"

        Case 8: GetDigit = "Eight"

        Case 9: GetDigit = "Nine"

        Case Else: GetDigit = ""

    End Select

End Function

.............................

Now you have to modify the logic accordinly...in QV function and script.

and yes,  if you have limited numbers of numbers.. the best way is as mentioned by Sunden.
