Re: Convert Number to Words (Indian Format)

Here is a function I gave some time ago that caters for Rupees, Lakhs,
Crore and Paise. To call it, enter something like

=SpellNumber(115) in a cell

Function SpellNumber(ByVal MyNumber, Optional incRupees As Boolean = True)
Dim Crores, Lakhs, Rupees, Paise, Temp
Dim DecimalPlace As Long, Count As Long
Dim myLakhs, myCrores
ReDim Place(9) As String
Place(2) = " Thousand ": Place(3) = " Million "
Place(4) = " Billion ": Place(5) = " Trillion "
' String representation of amount.
MyNumber = Trim(Str(MyNumber))
' Position of decimal place 0 if none.
DecimalPlace = InStr(MyNumber, ".")
' Convert Paise and set MyNumber to Rupees amount.
If DecimalPlace > 0 Then
Paise = GetTens(Left(Mid(MyNumber, DecimalPlace + 1) & "00", 2))
MyNumber = Trim(Left(MyNumber, DecimalPlace - 1))
End If
myCrores = MyNumber \ 10000000
myLakhs = (MyNumber - myCrores * 10000000) \ 100000
MyNumber = MyNumber - myCrores * 10000000 - myLakhs * 100000
Count = 1
Do While myCrores <> ""
Temp = GetHundreds(Right(myCrores, 3))
If Temp <> "" Then Crores = Temp & Place(Count) & Crores
If Len(myCrores) > 3 Then
myCrores = Left(myCrores, Len(myCrores) - 3)
Else
myCrores = ""
End If
Count = Count + 1
Loop
Count = 1
Do While myLakhs <> ""
Temp = GetHundreds(Right(myLakhs, 3))
If Temp <> "" Then Lakhs = Temp & Place(Count) & Lakhs
If Len(myLakhs) > 3 Then
myLakhs = Left(myLakhs, Len(myLakhs) - 3)
Else
myLakhs = ""
End If
Count = Count + 1
Loop
Count = 1
Do While MyNumber <> ""
Temp = GetHundreds(Right(MyNumber, 3))
If Temp <> "" Then Rupees = Temp & Place(Count) & Rupees
If Len(MyNumber) > 3 Then
MyNumber = Left(MyNumber, Len(MyNumber) - 3)
Else
MyNumber = ""
End If
Count = Count + 1
Loop
Select Case Crores

Lakhs & Rupees & Paise

' Converts a number from 100-999 into text

[QUOTE=Bob Phillips;980072]Here is a function I gave some time ago that caters for Rupees, Lakhs,
Crore and Paise.

The program is excellent but when it comes to more than 99 crores it gives an error message. How to change the code in such a way that it will give 500 crores and 5000 crores etc?
