Introduction

I have created this function for converting amount in Indian Rupees (INR). You can manipulate as you wish like decimal setting, Doller (any currency) Prefix.

Background

I have coded this function as per client's requirement to print word format of Billed Amount.

Using the code

This two dimensional array store the primary word convertion of number.

 Function retWord(ByVal Num As Decimal) As String
    'This two dimensional array store the primary word convertion of number.
    retWord = ""
    Dim ArrWordList(,) As Object = {{0, ""}, {1, "One"}, {2, "Two"}, {3, "Three"}, {4, "Four"}, _
                                    {5, "Five"}, {6, "Six"}, {7, "Seven"}, {8, "Eight"}, {9, "Nine"}, _
                                    {10, "Ten"}, {11, "Eleven"}, {12, "Twelve"}, {13, "Thirteen"}, {14, "Fourteen"}, _
                                    {15, "Fifteen"}, {16, "Sixteen"}, {17, "Seventeen"}, {18, "Eighteen"}, {19, "Nineteen"}, _
                                    {20, "Twenty"}, {30, "Thirty"}, {40, "Forty"}, {50, "Fifty"}, {60, "Sixty"}, _
                                    {70, "Seventy"}, {80, "Eighty"}, {90, "Ninety"}, {100, "Hundred"}, {1000, "Thousand"}, _
                                    {100000, "Lakh"}, {10000000, "Crore"}}

    Dim i As Integer
    For i = 0 To UBound(ArrWordList)
        If Num = ArrWordList(i, 0) Then
            retWord = ArrWordList(i, 1)
            Exit For
        End If
    Next
    Return retWord
End Function
