# Converting Values from Numeric Currency to Word Currency in Microsoft Excel

### WEBINAR:On-Demand

Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Environment: Visual Basic

### Introduction

This project contains three files and a conversion demonstration of numeric currency to string currency with the help of a macro and Visual Basic in Microsoft Excel. No code writing is required, but Num2str.dll is a Class that is created in VB 6.0. After downloading all three files (they're all in the one zip file), please copy all the files to C:\Num2Str folder (create a folder named Num2Str under the C drive before extracting). Now, the following three files are copied to Num2Str folder on your hard drive at C:\Num2Str.

• Num2str.dll—the main file contains functions
• ExcelMacro.txt—this text file contains the code for the macro

### Procedure

1. Open MS Excel and create new WorkBook1.

MainMenu -->TOOLS --> Micro --> Record New Micro
MainMenu -->Macro --> Stop Recording Micro
MainMenu -->Macro --> Visual Basic Editor

3. Now, the workbook contains a macro by the name of Micro1(default). Delete all code data, whatever was written under micro1; the code window should be empty.

4. In VISUAL BASIC EDITOR, choose MainMenu TOOLS --> REFERENCES.

5. In the Reference VBA Project window, follow these steps:
1. Click Browse.
2. Select Num2Str.dll (which has copied in your hard disk in folder C:\Num2Str).
3. Click the OK button.

6. Click on Module1 in the Project Explorer.

7. From the Main menu, choose INSERT -->File.

8. Now click on Module1 and there will be coding, as show below:
9. ```------------------------------------------------------------
Dim NS As New Num2Str
Sub Macro1()
For Each c In Worksheets("sheet1").Range("A1:A65000")
If c.Value = " " Then
c.Value = " "
Else
c.Value = NS.Num2Str(c.Value)
End If
Next c
End Sub

------------------------------------------------------------
```

Note: the scope of the range, which is (A1:A65000), can be changed per your requirements.

10. Choose Main Menu --> File --> Close and Return to Microsoft Excel, or press Alt + Q.
11. Now write any numeric value. Enter any numeric value less then 10000000000 on sheet1 in column A.
12. Choose Main Menu --> Tools --> Micro --> Micros (Alt + F8).

The numeric value will be replaced with its equivalent currency in words.

Hi if i intend to use it for invoicing purpose how can i mark a particular cell to display the converted value???? Also if you can suggest how to mark as locked (protected only non blank cell in xls)

• #### Skip This code

```Is there anyway to modify this code?  If not then I would skip this download.

Unfortunately in the Num2str function of the Num2str.dll parameter list the (number) is set as an integer and subsequently limited to VB's integer range and rounds up for anything with a decimal value greater than .50.

For example if I pass 999.51 it will return 1000.

If I pass it a value greater then 32767 a numeric overflow error occurs.

Twelve and forty are misspelled and it's not entirely in English...

I would skip on this code and definetly NOT outsource my programming to India!!!```

The program is great. However, it can't spell out the sen portion. FOr example: 400.45. It only displays four hundred. Instead of four hundred fourty five sen.

Is there any ways to enhance it?
