Excel 2013 and Excel 2016don’t have a default function that displays numbers as English words in a spreadsheet cell, but you can add this capability by pasting the SpellNumber function code into a module sheet. This function lets you convert dollar and cent amounts to words.
If you want to convert numeric values to text format without displaying them as words, use the TEXT function instead.
In this article
Create the SpellNumber function to convert numbers to words

Use the keyboard shortcut, Alt + F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor.
Note: You can also access the Visual Basic Editor by showing the Developer tab in your ribbon.

Click the Insert tab, and click Module.

Copy the following lines of code.
Note: Known as a macro function, this code automates the task of converting numbers to text throughout your spreadsheet.
Option Explicit
'Main Function
Function SpellNumber(ByVal MyNumber)
Dim Dollars, Cents, Temp
Dim DecimalPlace, Count
ReDim Place(9) As String
Place(2) = " Thousand "
Place(3) = " Million "
Place(4) = " Billion "
Place(5) = " Trillion "
' String representation of amount.
MyNumber = Trim(Str(MyNumber))
' Position of decimal place 0 if none.
DecimalPlace = InStr(MyNumber, ".")
' Convert cents and set MyNumber to dollar amount.
If DecimalPlace > 0 Then
Cents = GetTens(Left(Mid(MyNumber, DecimalPlace + 1) & _ "00", 2))
MyNumber = Trim(Left(MyNumber, DecimalPlace  1))
End If
Count = 1
Do While MyNumber <> ""
Temp = GetHundreds(Right(MyNumber, 3))
If Temp <> "" Then Dollars = Temp & Place(Count) & Dollars
If Len(MyNumber) > 3 Then
MyNumber = Left(MyNumber, Len(MyNumber)  3)
Else
MyNumber = ""
End If
Count = Count + 1
Loop
Select Case Dollars
Case ""
Dollars = "No Dollars"
Case "One"
Dollars = "One Dollar"
Case Else
Dollars = Dollars & " Dollars"
End Select
Select Case Cents
Case ""
Cents = " and No Cents"
Case "One"
Cents = " and One Cent"
Case Else
Cents = " and " & Cents & " Cents"
End Select
SpellNumber = Dollars & Cents
End Function
' Converts a number from 100999 into text

End If
' Convert the tens and ones place.

Case 9: GetDigit = "Nine"
Case Else: GetDigit = ""
End Select
End Function

Paste the lines of code into the Module1 (Code) box.

Click File, and click Close and Return to Microsoft Excel. The SpellNumber function is now ready to use.
Note: This function works only for the current Excel file you have open. To use this function in another Excel workbook, you must repeat the steps to copy and paste the code in that file.
Use the SpellNumber function in individual cells

Type the formula =SpellNumber(value) into the cell where you want to display a written number, replacing value with your number of choice.

On your keyboard, press Enter.
For example, if you type =SpellNumber(22.50), the cell should read TwentyTwo Dollars and Fifty Cents.
Tip: To convert numbers to text in a separate cell, replace the numeric value with a cell reference in the SpellNumber formula. For example, type =SpellNumber(A1) to display the written value of cell A1.
Save your SpellNumber function workbook
Excel cannot save a workbook with macro functions in the standard macrofree workbook format. If you click File > Save. A VB project dialog box opens. Click No.
You can save your file as an Excel MacroEnabled Template to keep your file in its current format.

Click File > Save As.

Click the Save as type dropdown menu, and select Excel MacroEnabled Template.

Click Save.
