what U should do is actually use %  and / operators
to divide the number.
then u must use an array of strings to connect it to,
u can write a recursive function for it.
i think this will help you a little bit to get the IDEA but I
didn't try it on any enviroment.
ValArray,ValStr are supposed to be
//===============================================================
static int round = 0;
void SetToText(int number , CString& StringOut)
{
  if(number>10)
  {  
      round++;
      SetToText(int , StringOut);
      StringOut += ValArray[number%(round*10)];
      StringOut += ValStr[round--];
      number/=10;  
      return;

  }
  if(number)
  StringOut += ValArray[number%10];
  StringOut += "\n" ;    
  return ;
}
//===============================================================

i have a number with 14 digits, so it´s i supposse it will be very hard to implement it.

I thinks it is classwork so You shouldn't ask it here... an nobody should answer...

Sorry my english isn´t very good, i don´t understand the word
classwork, Are you telling me that my question is a work that
my teachers are asking for?
or when you say classwork you mean that what i must do is to implement a class?

Dear XYU:
FOR XYU, ONLY FOR YOUR EYES:
i´m at work, i´m a spanish girl, i´m TELECOMUNICATIONS ingenieer.
I´m working as a ANALIST/PROGRAM, i´m developing a VC++ application for an enterprise. The work desarrollated till the moment is inmense, and we are looking for some details, like to convert numbers to letters in Spanish.
So my universitary days finished long time ago.
What i´ve done is to ask for something that some could have done, or could tell me where to find information about it. THE REASON WHY:
There´s an idea in the mind of an object programmer, COMPONENTS OR OBJETS RE-usability , when someone has developed and object, others use it, AND THEY DO NOT CREATE IT AGAIN.
I suppose that you must be very qualificated, but what i person never forget is what he is, an a person always must think that the other ones, can be less intelligent. Because if we think that the others must know what we know, THE OTHERS will never learn. But more things, you will never learn because the others will never tell you.
I hope you never ask, because if people answer you like you have answered me you will fell very depreased.

well it is infinite I'm sorry I resubmitted the answer and apperantly it didn't refresh it ,
it suppose to be :
//===============================================================
static int round = 0;
void SetToText(int number , CString& StringOut)
{
  if(number>10)
  {    
      round++;
      SetToText(number/10,StringOut);
      StringOut += ValArray[number%(round*10)];
      StringOut += ValStr[round--];
      number/=10;  
      return;

  }
  if(number)
  StringOut += ValArray[number];
  StringOut += "\n" ;      
  return ;
}
//===============================================================

ok ok ok ok .... it's was strange question... because the answer code is about 20 lines... and it's look like classwork :)
sorry.... I'm not sure there are any 3d party objects to do that... but You can write Your own... :) it's easy... just dont froget about exceptions beetween 10 and 20 :) like twelve .... (i don't know spanish) :).... about thinking recursively ... not here... its typical iterational task... :)

Yes i'm asking questions sometimes.... but before doing that... i using all books i can get (or trying to "invent a wheel") to answer by myself :) its a good practice :)
It's a good practice
