Hi there,

Please would someone advise me if there is any function in VB 6.0 or Crystal report that can be used to convert dollar
values into wording.  i.e. 1200.50  to One thousand two hundred dollars and fifty cents.  Many Many thanks

Warmest Regards
Morgan

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.

Option Explicit

'****************
' Main Function *
'****************

Function SpellNumber(ByVal MyNumber)
Dim Dollars, Cents, Temp
Dim DecimalPlace, Count

ReDim Place(9) As String
Place(2) = " Thousand "

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)
