How to convert numbers into words.

Microsoft Excel: How to convert numbers into words.

Here is the explanation to convert the numbers into words with images or screenshots.

Question: How can we convert any numeric number into words in MS excel?

Answer:  There is no option yet to use this thing as a function or formula in MS Excel, However, we have to install this function as a custom function ourselves in Microsoft excel. So how are we going to do it, let us explore here now?

NOTE: We have to do it through macro code then we will be able to install this custom function in MS excel.

Let’s start now.

Firstly we have to open an MS Excel spreadsheet and press 2 keys together at the same time (ALT+F11)

Then it will open up a new dialogue box under the name “Microsoft Visual Basic For Applications

Let us check this dialogue box in the image here first below.

Now we can clearly see this image and under the INSERT button, we have to find out MODULE and click on that. Once we click on that then there is a small empty box will open up, also we can see that box in the image above.

Here we have to paste a “MACRO CODE” which will create a custom function or formula in our spreadsheet we will be able to use this function easily which will help us to convert any numeric number into words in MS excel.

NOTE: This macro code is available here which could be easily taken. 


After putting this macro code here in the empty box then we can minimize it and simply go to our actual excel sheet that we opened first of all when we started. Here we have to go to the “FILE” menu and click “SAVE AS” and save this file.

Make sure we will save this file under the “EXCEL MACRO ENABLED WORDBOOK with any desired name.

Now we saved this file and will open this again and type this formula or function which will help us to convert numbers into words.

This function is as follows as below. =SpellNumber(SelectedNumber’sCell)

Let us check it here In the attached screenshot below.

So now we have seen here, this has been solved easily but here again, we will explore it like how we applied this function in MS excel after putting this “MACRO CODE

Question: How we can use this customer function?

Answer: Now we can open an MS Excel spreadsheet and let's suppose we put a number like any number like “450” in “E8 cell” as we can check in the image also.

In another cell which is “F8”, we have to apply this function so let us start now. Let us put a =SpellNumber(E8) and hit enter. That is it. If we do apply this custom function now then we will have numbers into words.

Here we have seen this was quite easy to make a custom function in MS excel through a “MACRO CODE”.

Nowadays this feature is the most helpful and required in all fields where we work in excel. Along with this, we can also explore our knowledge with other functions which are mostly used as features such as Vlookup, PivotTable, etc.

Vlookup - In its least complex structure, the VLOOKUP work says: =VLOOKUP(What you need to look into, where you need to search for it, the segment number in the range containing the incentive to restore, return an Approximate or Exact match – demonstrated as 1/TRUE, or 0/FALSE).

Hlookup - HLOOKUP represents Horizontal Lookup and can be utilized to recover data from a table via scanning a line for the coordinating information and submitting from the comparing part. While VLOOKUP looks for the incentive in a section, HLOOKUP looks for the incentive in succession.

Trim Function - The Microsoft Excel TRIM capacity restores a booking incentive with the main and following spaces eliminated. You can likewise utilize the TRIM capacity to eliminate unused spaces between words in a string. The TRIM capacity is a basic capacity in Excel that is ordered as a String/Text Function.

Sum Function - The Microsoft Excel SUM work includes all numbers in the scope of cells and returns the outcome. The SUM work is a perfect capacity in Excel that is ordered as a Math/Trig Function. It tends to be utilized as a worksheet work (WS) in Excel.

Data Validation Function - You can use data validation to secure such data or the features that customers go into a cell. One of the most broadly considered data validation uses is to make a drop-down summary.

Conditional Formatting - 

1). First, you need to select a cell where you want to put a condition or apply a conditional formula. 

2). Click the conditional formatting tab above and you will find many ways to use it.

3). Here you have all options like Highlight cell rule, Top-bottom rules, etc. 

4). You can use any conditional formatting rule from the options we have here.

5). Here you can also use a new rule for text functions, let's suppose you want to put any condition on the text then it also can be done easily here by using this conditional formatting function. You have also an option to highlight any numbers or texts that you have in cells.

6). Even you can also put any condition here by using it on dates as well.

7). Here you also have the option to select the duplicate values which can be coloured or highlighted easily by using this function rule of conditional formatting. 

8) You can use this function in multiple ways as it has many features, The topmost features it has that we are discussing here such as highlighting duplicate values, values in percentages, values from top to bottom, values from bottom to top, selecting texts alphabetically or etc.

There are many things to learn in ms excel but we need to explore our knowledge base about it if we want then we have multiple functions to use as features or functions in ms excel.
