Converting money to the word value.

,

With this script you can supply an money value such as $12525.83 and it will return the word value "Twelve Thousand Five Hundred And Twenty-Five Dollars And Eighty-Three Cents".
It is comprised of a table for Number to Name and a procedure to parse into it's pieces
NOTE: This only goes to billions at this point, but easy enough to expand.
May work even better as a function in 2000.




Update Notice: If you tried this code before April 17, 2002 the following bug fixes have been made.

.00 throwing error has been fixed.

20.00 displaying "Twenty-Dollars" now corrrectly diplays "Twenty Dollars".

111111.25 Not showing values for Thousands, Millions, Billions with a 1 in the Tens place corrected.

Corrected single ones position for each place all doing single digits amount for place as double that same number, for example 2000 was outputting Twenty-Two Thousand.

Got rid of second "and" in output when there is cents so instead of 250.12 being "Two Hundred And Fifty Dollars And Twelve Cents" now outputs "Two Hundred Fifty Dollars And Twelve Cents" unless is 250 then is "Two Hundred And Fifty Dollars".
