I'm building a project and i need code to transform numerical amounts (i.e.125.50 dollars) to text-based messages (i.e. one hundred and 25 dollars and fifty cents). Is there any possible way to do this in code?.

Sorry, EE prohibits members to ask assignment Q's and experts to answer them.

If you have specific problems with how to write the code then that is a perfectly reasonable question to ask, but to just plain ask for the code for your assignment is not.

Sorry,

Raymmond.

hi LatinFriend_M,

get the fre component-library vglib at

http://www.tsinet.ru/~vg/


it contains this component:
TMoneyString : TMoneyString is high-customizable component that converts
numbers to verbal representation.

hope this helps

I appreciate your help, but i was looking in the site you recommended me and i couldn't find the component you told me. Perhaps you can tell me where to look for in the site (i use delphi 3). However, i'm not looking for a component, i'm looking for "clues" to begin my own unit. If in this site is a explanation of the component you told me or pieces of the code used to create it, i will take your answer for good!!. Please let me know where i can find this component.

Hi Latinfriend,
                here is the answer for you,but partially,you update it to speak the cents.
Regards,

If u want to convert no.s into words use this function
ie 2567 - Two thousand Five hundred sixty seven
 
str := notowords(2567) ;
Max Limit - 1,999,999,999. (Integer limit, I can't help it)
 
Note : If u get any bugs in this, let me know.
 
Function NotoWords(Money : Integer): string;
var
   DivisnArr : array [1..6] of integer ;
   HunThuArr : array [1..4] of string ;
   TenNinArr : array [1..9] of string ;
   TeennoArr : array [1..9] of string ;
