looking on your question, only one word comes to my mind: WHY ?
who might need this in batch nowadays?  But, probably someone here will have something like that saved.
Last time I was solving something similar, my batch was calling external vbs to do this :-)

This would be very hard to do in pure DOS BAT commands, way past an effort I would do for a question answer.

If you really need something like this then I would suggest you find an implementation of this in VBS or Powershell, and then call that logic from your BAT script as needed to convert the number to a text version.  I've seen a number of these in my travels and even have a couple of VBS versions I played with...
