How high do you need the numbers to go? Will millions suffice or will the numbers go into billions?

I have seen similar questions before so it is worth continuing your search on EE while others contemplate your question.

Thanks

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Step 1 Alt+F11 in WB - VBA Window Open.
Step 2 On Left Side Of the VBA Explorer Window. Search For this workbook - Right Click -   Insert Module
Step 3 Copy Code from here & past in Right Side VBA Window - Save - Close VBA Window.
Step 4 Assuming Numerical value in Cell A2 then Formula "=WordNum(A2)".

i don't write Code, my self found on net only.
