Solution(step by step)
Convert number to text in Excel.

1. Use the keyboard shortcut, Alt + F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor (VBE).
2. Click the Insert tab, and click Module.

3. Copy the following lines of code.

Option Explicit

‘Main Function

Function SpellNumber(ByVal MyNumber)

Dim Dollars, Cents, Temp

Dim DecimalPlace, Count

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 cents and set MyNumber to dollar amount.

If DecimalPlace > 0 Then

Cents = GetTens(Left(Mid(MyNumber, DecimalPlace + 1) & _ “00”, 2))

MyNumber = Trim(Left(MyNumber, DecimalPlace – 1))

End If

Count = 1

Do While MyNumber <> “”

Temp = GetHundreds(Right(MyNumber, 3))

If Temp <> “” Then Dollars = Temp & Place(Count) & Dollars

If Len(MyNumber) > 3 Then

MyNumber = Left(MyNumber, Len(MyNumber) – 3)

Else

MyNumber = “”

End If

Count = Count + 1

Loop

Select Case Dollars

Case “”

Dollars = “No Dollars”

Case “One”

Dollars = “One Dollar”

Case Else

Dollars = Dollars & ” Dollars”

End Select

Select Case Cents

Case “”

Cents = ” and No Cents”

Case “One”

Cents = ” and One Cent”

Case Else

Cents = ” and ” & Cents & ” Cents”

End Select

SpellNumber = Dollars & Cents

End Function

‘ Converts a number from 100-999 into text

Function GetHundreds(ByVal MyNumber)

Dim Result As String

If Val(MyNumber) = 0 Then Exit Function

MyNumber = Right(“000” & MyNumber, 3)

‘ Convert the hundreds place.

If Mid(MyNumber, 1, 1) <> “0” Then

Result = GetDigit(Mid(MyNumber, 1, 1)) & ” Hundred “

End If

‘ Convert the tens and ones place.

If Mid(MyNumber, 2, 1) <> “0” Then

Result = Result & GetTens(Mid(MyNumber, 2))

Else

Result = Result & GetDigit(Mid(MyNumber, 3))

End If

GetHundreds = Result

End Function

‘ Converts a number from 10 to 99 into text.

Function GetTens(TensText)

Dim Result As String

Result = “” ‘ Null out the temporary function value.

If Val(Left(TensText, 1)) = 1 Then ‘ If value between 10-19…

Select Case Val(TensText)

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 ‘ If value between 20-99…

Select Case Val(Left(TensText, 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

Result = Result & GetDigit _

(Right(TensText, 1)) ‘ Retrieve ones place.

End If

GetTens = Result

End Function

‘ Converts a number from 1 to 9 into text.

Function GetDigit(Digit)

Select Case Val(Digit)

Case 1: GetDigit = “One”

Case 2: GetDigit = “Two”

Case 3: GetDigit = “Three”

Case 4: GetDigit = “Four”

Case 5: GetDigit = “Five”

Case 6: GetDigit = “Six”

Case 7: GetDigit = “Seven”

Case 8: GetDigit = “Eight”

Case 9: GetDigit = “Nine”

Case Else: GetDigit = “”

End Select

End Function

4. Paste the lines of code into the Module1 (Code) box.

5. Press Alt + Q to return to Excel. The SpellNumber function is now ready to use.

6. Type the formula =SpellNumber(A1) into the cell where you want to display a written number,
where A1 is the cell containing the number you want to convert. You can also manually type the value like =SpellNumber(22.50).

7. Press Enter to confirm the formula.

Note: This function works only for the current workbook. To use this function in another workbook,
you must repeat the steps to copy and paste the code in that workbook.
