Experts,

I have copied a function from the internet but when I paste into Excel it gives me an error.
The debugger highlights "NUMBER"  not sure what is wrong here...
Thank you

I don't think you can have spaces in function names, so ...

Function Convert_Number_To_Spanish (ByVal MyNumber)

Function Convert Number To Spanish (ByVal MyNumber)

This line creates a Function called Convert and then looks for arguments within parantheses. Therefore the word Number is the first word that is invalid. Try the following:

Function ConvertNumberToSpanish (ByVal MyNumber)

Leaving the spaces out between the words in the name of the function. If this is referenced from somewhere else in the spreadsheet you will need to adjust those locations as well.

OK it was the spaces.  But now I cant figure out how to run it.  

I thought it was a Macro but I inserted it as a Module and not sure how to run it.  

I have attached it so you can test it to see if I have done something incorrect.  


thank you

Just type this in any cell,

=Convert_Number_To_Spanish(A1)

You need to change the name by removing the spaces in the penultimate line as well.
