Many times we need the amount in figures to be converted into words. This is a typical requirement for writing checks or any other financial reports. Microsoft Excel does not have standard function available for this requirement. However there are customised functions available on the Internet. One such solution is available at Allexperts.com.
Display Numbers to Text.
You need to copy this to your
regular macro module. Once you have added it to your file you can use function SpellNumbers to convert any number into words easily as you use any other function of excel.
Function available at the net covers USD as currency, whereas I needed it in Indian Rupees. I have modified this to give results in any currency. The revised version gives me results as shown in the screen cast below.
Make sure that you enable macros to use this function. In case macros are disabled this function will not work in downloaded file
Syntex for the modified UDF is :
SpellCurr(MyNumber, MyCurrency, MyCurrencyPlace, MyCurrencyDecimals, MyCurrencyDecimalsPlace)
where
MyNumber = Numeric Value you need to convert into words
MyCurrency = Name of your Currency  i.e. Dollar for USA
MyCurrencyPlace = Prefix or Suffix the currency, use "P" for Prefix and "S" for Suffix
MyCurrencyDecimals = Name of your Currency Decimals  i.e. Cent for USA
MyCurrencyDecimalsPlace = Prefix or Suffix the currency decimals, use "P" for Prefix and "S" for Suffix
Modified code given below for those who want to use it. Currency inputs are optional and you will not need to input currency details in case you are using it for Indian Currency. Still this can be used for any currency provided you give currency inputs.
You will need to
copy this code to regular VBA module of your workbook
Function SpellCurr(ByVal MyNumber, _ Optional MyCurrency As String = "Rupee", _ Optional MyCurrencyPlace As String = "P", _ Optional MyCurrencyDecimals As String = "Paisa", _ Optional MyCurrencyDecimalsPlace As String = "S")
