Yes.  If it is an int then use a switch case structure. If it is a string then change it to an int. Better yet if it is a string recursively break it down into sub parts, goto another method with each sub-part where the switch is and then store the wording for print-out.  Break it down from right-to-left, the tens and hundreds you have to be careful about, but the others (thousands and millions, ect) you can reuse a case.  
talk through:
29932
first pass = in 2 out two  :count = 1
second pass = in 3 out thirty  :count =2
third pass = in 9 out nine hundred  :count =3
fourth pass= in 9 out nine thousand  :count =4
fifth pass= in 2 out twenty  :count =5

use a counter to 'remember' where you are.  Sorry about not giving code, but this question looks suspiciously like homework.
