Not enough information to give you a proper answer.

But, in principle, you could run a Replace function on the result of the ToWords function.

For example:

You have a formula field mWords:

stringvar resp;
resp := ToWords ({Orders_Detail.Order ID});
resp := Replace (resp,"thousand" ,"Lakh" );
resp

repeat the Replace command for all the changes you want to make.

ToWords converts the number to the language of the Crystal edition.  Are you trying to convert to a currency?

I didn't know what Lakh was.

Are yo trying to display the words in another language?

I believe you will need to buy the appropriate langauge edition.

You could also write your own function to do the conversion.

I don't think there is a version of CR which converts CURRENCY to words in any language or any currency.
It only converts numbers to words.
There is a procedure here which shows how (difficult it is!) to convert dollar amounts to words including currency.
