Numbers to Word

Cardinal numbers



Word can format numbers in several ways when they are represented by field codes. The DollarText field code is one choice.

Press Ctrl-F9 to insert a pair of field-code delimiters, which resemble boldface curly brackets {}. (The brackets can not be entered directly from the keyboard).

Between the field-code delimiters, enter = followed by the number. Then append the DollarText field switch. The result should look like this:

{ =34,582.13 \*DollarText \*Firstcap }
There are spaces in the field. Here is how it should be entered:
{space=34,582.13space\*DollarTextspace
\*Firstcapspace}

Right-click on the field and choose Update Field. You should now see the number spelled out in words:

Thirty-four thousand five hundred eighty-two dollars and 13/100.

Word provides some other numeric field codes. Here are a few of the more useful ones:

{ =42 \*CardText } - forty-two
(Spell our page numbers with a fields like this { PAGE \*CardText \*Caps } )

{ =42 \*OrdText } - forty-second

{ =42 \*Ordinal } - 42nd

{ =42 \*ROMAN } - XLII
