Name & Parameters: [color:red][big] AmountText ( amount ) [/big]

Description: Not quite mine, just adapted from a formula posted on the FMP website. Returns the check-style text line given a dollar amount in a number field referenced by the "amount" parameter. As posted, only works with US Currency, but I'm sure it can be modified for anything.

Sample Input:

123.45

Results:

One Hundred Twenty Three Dollars and Forty Five cents

Recursive: no

Formula:

```Choose(Int(Mod(amount;10^12) / 10^11); ""; "One Hundred "; "Two Hundred "; "Three Hundred "; "Four Hundred "; "Five Hundred "; "Six Hundred "; "Seven Hundred "; "Eight Hundred "; "Nine Hundred ") &

If(Int(Mod(amount;10^11) / 10^10) = 1;

Choose(Int(Mod(amount;10^10) / 10^9); "Ten "; "Eleven "; "Twelve "; "Thirteen "; "Fourteen "; "Fifteen "; "Sixteen "; "Seventeen "; "Eighteen "; "Nineteen ");

Choose(Int(Mod(amount;10^11) / 10^10); ""; ""; "Twenty "; "Thirty "; "Forty "; "Fifty "; "Sixty "; "Seventy "; "Eighty "; "Ninety ") &

Choose(Int(Mod(amount;10^10) / 10^9); ""; "One "; "Two "; "Three "; "Four "; "Five "; "Six "; "Seven "; "Eight "; "Nine ")) &

Case(Int(Mod(amount;10^12)/10^9) and Int(Mod(amount;10^9) / 10^3); "Billion, "; Int(Mod(amount;10^12)/10^9);"Billion ";"")

&

Choose(Int(Mod(amount;10^9) / 10^8); ""; "One Hundred "; "Two Hundred "; "Three Hundred "; "Four Hundred "; "Five Hundred "; "Six Hundred "; "Seven Hundred "; "Eight Hundred "; "Nine Hundred ") &

If(Int(Mod(amount;10^8) / 10^7) = 1;

Choose(Int(Mod(amount;10^7) / 10^6); "Ten "; "Eleven "; "Twelve "; "Thirteen "; "Fourteen "; "Fifteen "; "Sixteen "; "Seventeen "; "Eighteen "; "Nineteen ");

Case(Int(Mod(amount;10^6)/10^3) and Int(Mod(amount;10^3) / 10^0); "Thousand, "; Int(Mod(amount;10^6)/10^3);"Thousand ";"")

&

Choose(Int(Mod(amount;10^3) / 100); ""; "One Hundred "; "Two Hundred "; "Three Hundred "; "Four Hundred "; "Five Hundred "; "Six Hundred "; "Seven Hundred "; "Eight Hundred "; "Nine Hundred ") &

Genx, the cf you referenced from Brian's site accomplishes something different...that one will take 123.45 and give you "US\$123.45." Mine will take 123.45 and give you "one hundred twenty three dollars and forty-five cents".

The point of mine is to give you the amount in WORDS, like you'd see in the text area of a check.

The technique has been around for a long time.

I just did a search for Numbers to Text, and found this Link

There is a file I pointed to, and a CF that Mr. Vodka pointed to.

HTH

Naturally, Mr. Smith - there is nothing new under the sun!! Also, as I mentioned, the "technique" wasn't mine...it was FMI's; I just modified it slightly to make it available as a CF in case someone needed it that way.

The function you referenced (http://www.briandunning.com/cf/22) is indeed something I hadn't seen - but then again it was posted a month after I posted this. Plus it requires two other functions - this one's self-contained. Like all things free, though - use it if you like, don't if you don't!!

'Nuff said.

Well thats pretty strange considering that I posted the link to that CF on Wed Nov 09 2005 01:24 PM . Hehe... :

Sorry, Mr. Vodka. Just looked at it and it said it was updated in July of '06. Didn't mean to steal your thunder!

##### Share on other sites

Nah not stealing any thunder... I was just teasing you. It always helps to have different methods to solve the same problem. :
