Ms access Application currency handling

Hi

I want to use the currency function below which is in a module in my application, I intend to use it as follows:
For example total invoice value control ([txtinvoiceToal]), I want to use it in its control source like =English([txtinvoiceToal]) so that I get value in words. How can I add example Pesos, Rands Or kwacha at the beginning of the converted values?

Any idea?

Replace the constants:

   Const Hundred = " hundred"
   Const One = "one"
   Const Two = "two"
   Const Three = "three"
   Const Four = "four"
   Const Five = "five"
   Const Six = "six"
   Const Seven = "seven"
   Const Eight = "eight"
   Const Nine = "nine"

with the words from the other language.

You may also have to adjust this to use the constants:

   Select Case (N \ 10)
      Case 0, 1: Flag = False
      Case 2: Buf = Buf & "twenty": Flag = True
      Case 3: Buf = Buf & "thirty": Flag = True
      Case 4: Buf = Buf & "forty": Flag = True
      Case 5: Buf = Buf & "fifty": Flag = True
      Case 6: Buf = Buf & "sixty": Flag = True
      Case 7: Buf = Buf & "seventy": Flag = True
      Case 8: Buf = Buf & "eighty": Flag = True
      Case 9: Buf = Buf & "ninety": Flag = True
   End Select

Open in new window

and clean up this, which uses a mix of constants and literals:

   Select Case (N)
      Case 0:
      Case 1: Buf = Buf & One
      Case 2: Buf = Buf & Two
      Case 3: Buf = Buf & Three
      Case 4: Buf = Buf & Four
      Case 5: Buf = Buf & Five
      Case 6: Buf = Buf & Six
      Case 7: Buf = Buf & Seven
      Case 8: Buf = Buf & Eight
      Case 9: Buf = Buf & Nine
      Case 10: Buf = Buf & "ten"
      Case 11: Buf = Buf & "eleven"
      Case 12: Buf = Buf & "twelve"
      Case 13: Buf = Buf & "thirteen"
      Case 14: Buf = Buf & "fourteen"
      Case 15: Buf = Buf & "fifteen"
      Case 16: Buf = Buf & "sixteen"
      Case 17: Buf = Buf & "seventeen"
      Case 18: Buf = Buf & "eighteen"
      Case 19: Buf = Buf & "nineteen"
   End Select

Outside of you function, How do your identify currencies names ?
Fabrice LambertConsultingCommented:
And speaking about this, translating the currency's name isn't your function's responsibility; it already has one (translating numbers to English words), that is enough.
It should be done in another function.

In the end, just concatenate the 2 functions results.
