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.

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.
