### Convert Number to Words Using Excel SpellNumber in Pesos Format

You can make your Excel works easier when dealing with conversion from numbers or amount to words.
All you have to do is type the number on one cell and use the SpellNumber function by creating a new module on your Excel workbook. In this case you are now error free rather than encoding the amount in words manually. The code below is created specifically for Philippines Peso conversion though you can easily edit the currency (e.g USD, Rupees, Ringgit, Riyal, Dirham, Euro, Taka and more.) according likes and format needs. The format below is useful in creating check / cheque design for manual printing and other purposes.

You can also edit code if you’re knowledgeable in Visual Basic coding. Original code is available publicly in  Microsoft website.

1. Thank you so much! Such a big help :)

Tnx a lot. Kudos to the author!

3. Code has been set in VBA. How to do the SpellNumber function?

1. in the formula bar in Excel just Type "=SpellNumber" then select the Cell you want to be Convert into Text. :)

2. Why is that if I save the files I cannot use it anymore?

4. Thank You very Much for this, this VBA code thus works perfectly. I don't know anything about VBA, but would like a different output.

Your VBA CODE .23 = "No Pesos & 23/100 Pesos Only"

it is possible to be this way .23 = 23/100 Pesos Only

Thank You and More Power!

5. there was an error and looks like this #NAME? how to solve this?

1. When you use it in excel file you should save as it in macro-enable so that VBA will not remove in your file.

Hope it helps.

6. Thank you so much <3

How to change the format for example:

Eighty Six Thousand Seven Hundred Thirty Seven & 24/100 Pesos Only

Replace to:

Eighty Six Thousand Seven Hundred Thirty Seven Pesos & 24/100

What should be edited in the VBA?

Thanks and more power.

8. Hi Sir, it is indeed a big help for everyone. Thanks and more power.

By the way can we edit the Pesos only to put it before the cents? For example:

One thousand five hundred Fifty Pesos and 50/100

How can we edit it? Thanks again

9. IS THIS APPLICABLE IN EXCEL 2019
