More information:
This project demonstrates an easy approach to converting a numeric dollar value into its text equivalent. The primary purpose for such a mechanism would be to express the amount displayed on a check as a string within the ‘Amount’ section typical to most checks. It may have some other use as well but that was the goal the author had in mind when he wrote a simple code module to perform the conversion. The code provided in the example will convert numbers between 1 cent and $9,999,999.99, but it could be continued beyond this point with little additional effort.
