## Converting numbers to words vb 6.0 - K Pravin Kumar Reddy replied to Deepak Sanwal on 12-Feb-07 07:10 AM

In Vb6.0: http://www.mentalis.org/tips/tip108.shtml
In c++: http://h21007.www2.hp.com/dspp/tech/tech_TechDocumentDetailPage_IDX/1,1701,3556,00.html

Algorithm, in case you want to write your own code.
1. First, break the number down into the highest unit, in this case thousands. So, the first part of our given number produces the number 123, with a unit of thousand.

2. Next, split off the hundreds. So, you have one hundred.

3. The next step is to look at the tens unit. If this number were zero, you would skip it. In this case, it is a two, so the number is twenty. An important exception here is the number one. In this case, you have to apply special English rules (i.e. eleven, twelve, thirteen) and skip the ones digit. So, because the second digit is a two, you now have one hundred twenty.

4. Finally, look at the ones digit. In our case, it is a three, so you have one hundred twenty three.

5. Append the units from step 1: one hundred twenty three thousand.

6. Repeat for the next block. If you are under a thousand, skip the units part. Put both blocks together to produce: one hundred twenty three thousand four hundred fifty six.
