## Steps to Convert Currency to Words in Excel

Say, we have a dataset of several numbers that you want to convert into words.

Now, the best way to convert the currency to words in Excel is to create a function using a **VBA** code. Follow the step-by-step guidelines to accomplish your desired result.

### đź“Ś Step 1: Create a Module

You need to access the VBA window first to write the VBA code.

- In order to do this, first and foremost, go to the
**Developer**tab >>**Visual Basic**tool.

- As a result, the
**Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications**window will appear. - Following, click on the
**Insert**tab >>**Module**option.

Consequently, a new module named **Module 1** will be created under the **Modules** group.

### đź“Ś Step 2: Write VBA Code and Save the Module

Now, you have to write the VBA code in the module.

- For doing this,
**double-click**on**Module 1**. - Consequently, the code window will appear. Write the required
**VBA**code here.

```
Function ConvertCurrencytoWords(ByVal GivenCurrency)
Dim USD, C
Words = Array("", "", " Thousand ", " Million ", " Billion ", " Trillion ")
GivenCurrency = Trim(Str(GivenCurrency))
FractionCurrency = InStr(GivenCurrency, ".")
If FractionCurrency > 0 Then
C = TensPlace(Left(Mid(GivenCurrency, FractionCurrency + 1) & "00", 2))
GivenCurrency = Trim(Left(GivenCurrency, FractionCurrency - 1))
End If
GetIndex = 1
Do While GivenCurrency <> ""
GetHundred = ""
GetValue = Right(GivenCurrency, 3)
If Val(GetValue) <> 0 Then
GetValue = Right("000" & GetValue, 3)
If Mid(GetValue, 1, 1) <> "0" Then
GetHundred = OnesPlace(Mid(GetValue, 1, 1)) & " Hundred "
End If
If Mid(GetValue, 2, 1) <> "0" Then
GetHundred = GetHundred & TensPlace(Mid(GetValue, 2))
Else
GetHundred = GetHundred & OnesPlace(Mid(GetValue, 3))
End If
End If
If GetHundred <> "" Then
USD = GetHundred & Words(GetIndex) & USD
End If
If Len(GivenCurrency) > 3 Then
GivenCurrency = Left(GivenCurrency, Len(GivenCurrency) - 3)
Else
GivenCurrency = ""
End If
GetIndex = GetIndex + 1
Loop
Select Case USD
Case ""
USD = "No USD"
Case "One"
USD = "One Dollar"
Case Else
USD = USD & " USD"
End Select
Select Case C
Case ""
C = " and No C"
Case "One"
C = " and One Cent"
Case Else
C = " and " & C & " C"
End Select
ConvertCurrencytoWords = USD & C
End Function
Function TensPlace(TensDigit)
Dim Output As String
Output = ""
If Val(Left(TensDigit, 1)) = 1 Then
Select Case Val(TensDigit)
Case 10: Output = "Ten"
Case 11: Output = "Eleven"
Case 12: Output = "Twelve"
Case 13: Output = "Thirteen"
Case 14: Output = "Fourteen"
Case 15: Output = "Fifteen"
Case 16: Output = "Sixteen"
Case 17: Output = "Seventeen"
Case 18: Output = "Eighteen"
Case 19: Output = "Nineteen"
Case Else
End Select
Else
Select Case Val(Left(TensDigit, 1))
Case 2: Output = "Twenty "
Case 3: Output = "Thirty "
Case 4: Output = "Forty "
Case 5: Output = "Fifty "
Case 6: Output = "Sixty "
Case 7: Output = "Seventy "
Case 8: Output = "Eighty "
Case 9: Output = "Ninety "
Case Else
End Select
Output = Output & OnesPlace(Right(TensDigit, 1))
End If
TensPlace = Output
End Function
Function OnesPlace(OnesDigit)
Select Case Val(OnesDigit)
Case 1: OnesPlace = "One"
Case 2: OnesPlace = "Two"
Case 3: OnesPlace = "Three"
Case 4: OnesPlace = "Four"
Case 5: OnesPlace = "Five"
Case 6: OnesPlace = "Six"
Case 7: OnesPlace = "Seven"
Case 8: OnesPlace = "Eight"
Case 9: OnesPlace = "Nine"
Case Else: OnesPlace = ""
End Select
End Function
```

- Afterward, press
**Ctrl + S**and close the VBA window.

- Subsequently, go to the
**File**tab of Excel.

- Following, choose the
**Save As**option from the expanded**File**tab.

- As a result, the Excel
**Save As**window will appear. Following, click on the**Browse**option.

- At this time, the
**Save As**dialogue box will appear. Select the**Save as type:**option as**.xlsm**format. Finally, click on the**Save**button.

Thus, you have created a new module named ConvertCurrencytoWords through the VBA code.

### đź“Ś Step 3: Insert the User Defined Function

As you have created a module, now you can use it as a function here to get your desired result.

- Initially, click on the
**C5**cell. - Afterward, insert the following formula containing the created function from
**Module 1**.

`=ConvertCurrencytoWords(B5)`

- Subsequently, hit the
**Enter**button.

- As a result, you will be able to convert the currency of the
**B5**cell to words in Excel. - Now, place your cursor in the
**bottom right**position of the cell. - Subsequently, drag the
**fill handle****below**upon its appearance.

As a result, you will get all the converted words from the currency of the whole dataset. And, the output should look like the following.

## Convert Integer Currency to Words by Using an Excel Formula

You can also use a formula to convert the currency to words in Excel. But, in this way, you can only convert the integer numbers properly. Decimal conversion can result in errors in this formula. But the advantage of this formula is, that you can convert integers up to 100 billion using this formula. (We have found the formula from **HaroonSid.)**

Follow the steps below to achieve this.

**đź“Ś Steps:**

- Â First and foremost, click on the
**C5**cell and insert the following formula.

`=IF(OR(LEN(FLOOR(B5,1))=13,FLOOR(B5,1)<=0),"Out ofÂ range",PROPER(SUBSTITUTE(CONCATENATE(CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),1,1)+1,"","one hundred ","two hundred ","three hundred ","four hundred ","five hundred ","six hundred ","seven hundred ","eight hundred ","nine hundred "),CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),2,1)+1,"",CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),3,1)+1,"ten","eleven","twelve","thirteen","fourteen","fifteen","sixteen","seventeen","eighteen","nineteen"),"twenty","thirty","forty","fifty","sixty","seventy","eighty","ninety"),IF(VALUE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),2,1))>1,CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),3,1)+1,"","-one","-two","-three","-four","-five","-six","-seven","-eight","-nine"),IF(VALUE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),2,1))=0,CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),3,1)+1,"","one","two","three","four","five","six","seven","eight","nine"),"")),IF(B5>=10^9," billion ",""),CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),4,1)+1,"","one hundred ","two hundred ","three hundred ","four hundred ","five hundred ","six hundred ","seven hundred ","eight hundred ","nine hundred "),CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),5,1)+1,"",CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),6,1)+1,"ten","eleven","twelve","thirteen","fourteen","fifteen","sixteen","seventeen","eighteen","nineteen"),"twenty","thirty","forty","fifty","sixty","seventy","eighty","ninety"),IF(VALUE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),5,1))>1,CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),6,1)+1,"","-one","-two","-three","-four","-five","-six","-seven","-eight","-nine"),IF(VALUE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),5,1))=0,CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),6,1)+1,"","one","two","three","four","five","six","seven","eight","nine"),"")),IF(VALUE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),4,3))>0," million ",""),CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),7,1)+1,"","one hundred ","two hundred ","three hundred ","four hundred ","five hundred ","six hundred ","seven hundred ","eight hundred ","nine hundred "),CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),8,1)+1,"",CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),9,1)+1,"ten","eleven","twelve","thirteen","fourteen","fifteen","sixteen","seventeen","eighteen","nineteen"),"twenty","thirty","forty","fifty","sixty","seventy","eighty","ninety"),IF(VALUE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),8,1))>1,CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),9,1)+1,"","-one","-two","-three","-four","-five","-six","-seven","-eight","-nine"),IF(VALUE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),8,1))=0,CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),9,1)+1,"","one","two","three","four","five","six","seven","eight","nine"),"")),IF(VALUE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),7,3))," thousand ",""),CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),10,1)+1,"","one hundred ","two hundred ","three hundred ","four hundred ","five hundred ","six hundred ","seven hundred ","eight hundred ","nine hundred "),CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),11,1)+1,"",CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),12,1)+1,"ten","eleven","twelve","thirteen","fourteen","fifteen","sixteen","seventeen","eighteen","nineteen"),"twenty","thirty","forty","fifty","sixty","seventy","eighty","ninety"),IF(VALUE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),11,1))>1,CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),12,1)+1,"","-one","-two","-three","-four","-five","-six","-seven","-eight","-nine"),IF(VALUE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),11,1))=0,CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(B5),REPT(0,12)),12,1)+1,"","one","two","three","four","five","six","seven","eight","nine"),""))),"Â "," ")&IF(FLOOR(B5,1)>1,"",""))&IF(ISERROR(FIND(".",B5,1)),""," "&PROPER(IF(LEN(LEFT(TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(Sheet1!B5,".",REPT(" ",255)),255,200)),2))=1,CHOOSE(1*LEFT(TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(Sheet1!B5,".",REPT(" ",255)),255,200)),2),"ten","twenty","thirty","forty","fifty","sixty","seventy","eighty","ninety")&"","")&CONCATENATE(CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(LEFT(TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(Sheet1!B5,".",REPT(" ",255)),255,200)),2)),REPT(0,12)),11,1)+1,"",CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(LEFT(TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(Sheet1!B5,".",REPT(" ",255)),255,200)),2)),REPT(0,12)),12,1)+1,"ten","eleven","twelve","thirteen","fourteen","fifteen","sixteen","seventeen","eighteen","nineteen")&"","twenty","thirty","forty","fifty","sixty","seventy","eighty","ninety"),IF(VALUE(MID(TEXT(INT(LEFT(TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(Sheet1!B5,".",REPT(" ",255)),255,200)),2)),REPT(0,12)),11,1))>1,CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(LEFT(TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(Sheet1!B5,".",REPT(" ",255)),255,200)),2)),REPT(0,12)),12,1)+1,"","-one","-two","-three","-four","-five","-six","-seven","-eight","-nine")&"",IF(LEFT(TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(Sheet1!B5,".",REPT(" ",255)),255,200)),2)="01","one cent",IF(LEFT(TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(Sheet1!B5,".",REPT(" ",255)),255,200)),1)="0",CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(INT(LEFT(TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(Sheet1!B5,".",REPT(" ",255)),255,200)),2)),REPT(0,12)),12,1)+1,"","one","two","three","four","five","six","seven","eight","nine")&"","")))))))`

- Subsequently, hit the
**Enter**button. - Afterward, place your cursor in the
**bottom right**position of the cell. - Drag the
**fill handle downward**upon its appearance.

Thus, you will get all the currencies converted into words. For instance, the output should look like this.

## đź’¬ Things to Remember

- You must save the Excel file in
**.xlsm**format. Otherwise, the macro wonâ€™t be enabled. Thus, you can not use the ConvertCurrencytoWords function. - Another thing, you have to keep in mind is that, if you send the Excel file to someone, the macro has to be built in his/her Excel. Moreover, he/she has to enable the macro when opening the file. Otherwise, he wonâ€™t be able to use the created function.
