To do that you will probably have to write your own translation function.

What formula or function are you using to convert the number to words?

I don't know if towords can handle Indian currency.

Here is the beginning of a formula

Name - ToWordsIndian
Formula
WhilePrintingRecords;
StringVar strAmount := "";
NumberVar ValLakh := 0;
NumberVar ValRest := 0;
NumberVar intComma := 0;

strAmount := ToText({YourNumberFIeld}, "#,#####");
intComma := instr(StrAmount,",");
ValLakh := val(left(StrAmount,intComma - 1));
ValRest := val(mid(StrAmount,intComma + 1));
towords (ValLakh,0) & " lakh " & Towords(ValRest,0)
