A long time ago I stumbled across the code to convert a dollar value to a text format.  For example the code would convert 11,382 to "Eleven thousand three hundred eighty-two"

A timely answer would be greatly appreciated, especially since this question has been answered before.

Hi thewesties

Here is a function I use

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

         ReDim Place(9) As String
         Place(2) = " Thousand "
         Place(3) = " Million "
         Place(4) = " Billion "
         Place(5) = " Trillion "

         ' Convert MyNumber to a string, trimming extra spaces.
         MyNumber = Trim(Str(MyNumber))

         ' Find decimal place.
         DecimalPlace = InStr(MyNumber, ".")

         ' If we find decimal place...
         If DecimalPlace > 0 Then
            ' Convert cents
            Temp = left(Mid(MyNumber, DecimalPlace + 1) & "00", 2)
            Cents = ConvertTens(Temp)

            ' Strip off cents from remainder to convert.
            MyNumber = Trim(left(MyNumber, DecimalPlace - 1))
         End If

         Count = 1
         Do While MyNumber <> ""
            ' Convert last 3 digits of MyNumber to English dollars.
            Temp = ConvertHundreds(Right(MyNumber, 3))
            If Temp <> "" Then Dollars = Temp & Place(Count) & Dollars
            If Len(MyNumber) > 3 Then
               ' Remove last 3 converted digits from MyNumber.
               MyNumber = left(MyNumber, Len(MyNumber) - 3)
            Else
               MyNumber = ""
            End If
            Count = Count + 1
         Loop

         ' Clean up dollars.

               Case Else

            ' Convert ones place digit.
            Result = Result & ConvertDigit(Right(MyTens, 1))
         End If

         ConvertTens = Result
End Function
