Converting dollar amount to text

Converting dollar amount to text

Converting dollar amount to text

(OP)
I need to convert number amounts over a million to text, as on a check.  I have seen solutions for amounts under a million, however we transfer funds over $1,000,000.00 daily.  Users are getting tired of typing the amount out.
Can this be done?

RE: Converting dollar amount to text

Try this code in a module named CurrencyCalculator:

Function ConvertCurrencyToEnglish(ByVal MyNumber)
   Dim Temp
   Dim Dollars, Cents
   Dim DecimalPlace, Count

   ReDim Place(9) As String
   Place(2) = " Thousand "
   Place(3) = " Million "
   Place(4) = " Billion "
   Place(5) = " Trillion "

   ' Convert MyNumber to a string, trimming extra spaces.
   MyNumber = Trim(Str(MyNumber))

   ' Find decimal place.
   DecimalPlace = InStr(MyNumber, ".")

   ' If we find decimal place...
   If DecimalPlace > 0 Then
      ' Convert cents
      Temp = Left(Mid(MyNumber, DecimalPlace + 1) & "00", 2)
      Cents = ConvertTens(Temp)

      ' Strip off cents from remainder to convert.
      MyNumber = Trim(Left(MyNumber, DecimalPlace - 1))
   End If

   Count = 1
   Do While MyNumber <> ""
      ' Convert last 3 digits of MyNumber to English dollars.
      Temp = ConvertHundreds(Right(MyNumber, 3))
      If Temp <> "" Then Dollars = Temp & Place(Count) & Dollars
      If Len(MyNumber) > 3 Then
         ' Remove last 3 converted digits from MyNumber.
         MyNumber = Left(MyNumber, Len(MyNumber) - 3)
      Else
         MyNumber = ""
      End If
      Count = Count + 1
   Loop

   ' Clean up dollars.
   Select Case Dollars
      Case ""
         Dollars = "No Dollars"
      Case "One"
         Dollars = "One Dollar"
      Case Else
         Dollars = Dollars & " Dollars"
   End Select

   ' Clean up cents.
   Select Case Cents
      Case ""
         Cents = " And No Cents"
      Case "One"
         Cents = " And One Cent"
      Case Else
         Cents = " And " & Cents & " Cents"
   End Select

   ConvertCurrencyToEnglish = Dollars & Cents
End Function

Private Function ConvertHundreds(ByVal MyNumber)
   Dim Result As String

   ' Exit if there is nothing to convert.
   If Val(MyNumber) = 0 Then Exit Function

   ' Append leading zeros to number.
   MyNumber = Right("000" & MyNumber, 3)

   ' Do we have a hundreds place digit to convert?
   If Left(MyNumber, 1) <> "0" Then
      Result = ConvertDigit(Left(MyNumber, 1)) & " Hundred "
   End If

   ' Do we have a tens place digit to convert?
   If Mid(MyNumber, 2, 1) <> "0" Then
      Result = Result & ConvertTens(Mid(MyNumber, 2))
   Else
      ' If not, then convert the ones place digit.
      Result = Result & ConvertDigit(Mid(MyNumber, 3))
   End If

   ConvertHundreds = Trim(Result)
End Function

Private Function ConvertTens(ByVal MyTens)
   Dim Result As String

   ' Is value between 10 and 19?
   If Val(Left(MyTens, 1)) = 1 Then
      Select Case Val(MyTens)
         Case 10: Result = "Ten"
         Case 11: Result = "Eleven"
         Case 12: Result = "Twelve"
         Case 13: Result = "Thirteen"
         Case 14: Result = "Fourteen"
         Case 15: Result = "Fifteen"
         Case 16: Result = "Sixteen"
         Case 17: Result = "Seventeen"
         Case 18: Result = "Eighteen"
         Case 19: Result = "Nineteen"
         Case Else
      End Select
   Else
      ' .. otherwise it's between 20 and 99.
      Select Case Val(Left(MyTens, 1))
         Case 2: Result = "Twenty "
         Case 3: Result = "Thirty "
         Case 4: Result = "Forty "
         Case 5: Result = "Fifty "
         Case 6: Result = "Sixty "
         Case 7: Result = "Seventy "
         Case 8: Result = "Eighty "
         Case 9: Result = "Ninety "
         Case Else
      End Select

      ' Convert ones place digit.
      Result = Result & ConvertDigit(Right(MyTens, 1))
   End If

   ConvertTens = Result
End Function

Private Function ConvertDigit(ByVal MyDigit)
   Select Case Val(MyDigit)
      Case 1: ConvertDigit = "One"
      Case 2: ConvertDigit = "Two"
      Case 3: ConvertDigit = "Three"
      Case 4: ConvertDigit = "Four"
      Case 5: ConvertDigit = "Five"
      Case 6: ConvertDigit = "Six"
      Case 7: ConvertDigit = "Seven"
      Case 8: ConvertDigit = "Eight"
      Case 9: ConvertDigit = "Nine"
      Case Else: ConvertDigit = ""
   End Select

End Function




Then place this in the Control Source for your text box.

=ConvertCurrencyToEnglish([Total])


Good Luck.
