I need to make a User Defined Function in Crystal Reports. How do i go about it?

It is basically a Figures to Words converter, but the towords() function does not satisfy Indian Currency units.

I have the function already being used in various projects in VB, can that be used here?

You can create a UFL (User Function Library) based on your VB code.  See BO's tech support site for documents on how you crate a UFL using Visual Basic.

If you post the VB code here, I can test and let you know if it works well in a UFL (basically a question of arguments & return data types).

Cheers,

Should work without a problem in a UFL.
