Put this into a module:
Option Explicit 'http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;enus;95640 Private Sub TestIt() Debug.Print ConvertCurrencyToEnglish(123456789.33) End Sub 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 = Temp & "/100 Dollars" ' Strip off cents from remainder to convert. MyNumber = Trim(Left(MyNumber, DecimalPlace  1)) Else Cents = "00/100 Dollars" 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 = Trim(Dollars) & " " 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, put your number in any cell and, in the cell to the right (B1 for insctance), write:
=ConvertCurrencyToEnglish(A1) [if the number is in cell A1, for instance]
Note the source of the code, that I just made a quick adaptation, mentioned inside the code.
