|Converting numeric dollar amounts into text|
|By: Jim Pinery Date: 24/09/1998|
This code will convert a numeric dollar amount into text for use in such applications as printing a check.
This code assumes that the input will be in a valid numeric format. So, either check the data before this routine begins, or put some kind of error handling in it. Also, it has an upper limit of $999,999.99. This should more properly be handled outside of this routine before an amount is ever passed to it.
|dollars: a string with the numerical value to be converted|
Type of data
|The dollars converted into text|
For example $27,542.50 will be converted to Twenty Seven Thousand Five Hundred Forty Two and 50/100.
The function is contained in a module. You can cut and paste it in any program of yours.
