# function

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

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
MODULE.xls
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.
Of course I don't know if the answer is right, but it does come up with one!

Thank you.  I had to convert the name elsewhere as pony said...
