We may require currency in both number & words in MS Access Reports. Here I am giving a easiest way to implement this. This artice is extension of my previous blog post Convert Currency in Number to Words (Indian Rupees).

Note : Screenshots may differ for your Access Version, If you have any queries, comment below.

1. Go to Database Tools Tab in MS Access, click on Visual Basic

2. Right click on Modules, select Insert -> Module

3. Copy and paste the VBA code given below.

```
Function ConvertCurrencyToEnglish(ByVal MyNumber)
' Edited by Karthikeyan [email protected]
Dim Temp
Dim Rupees, Paise
Dim DecimalPlace, Count
ReDim Place(9) As String
Place(2) = " Thousand "

' Convert MyNumber to a string, trimming extra spaces.
MyNumber = Trim(Str(MyNumber))
' Find decimal place.
DecimalPlace = InStr(MyNumber, ".")
' If we find decimal place...
If DecimalPlace > 0 Then
' Convert Paise
Temp = Left(Mid(MyNumber, DecimalPlace + 1) & "00", 2)
' Hi! Note the above line Mid function it gives right portion
' after the decimal point
'if only . and no numbers such as 789. accures, mid returns nothing
' to avoid error we added 00
' Left function gives only left portion of the string with specified places here 2
Paise = ConvertTens(Temp)
' Strip off paise from remainder to convert.
MyNumber = Trim(Left(MyNumber, DecimalPlace - 1))
End If
Count = 1

4. Save and Close the Visual Application Window.

5. Create a table, and report of your choice.

6. Add a Text a field in report where you want to convert the number to words, set Control Source propery to the currency conversion formula.

For example in my report sum of amount field need to be converted to words.

I have added a text field named AmtInWords and set the control source property value to the following formula.

=ConvertCurrencyToEnglish(Sum([Amount]))

**Update 02/03/2017 : 'Rupee/ Rupees' word added as prefix, 'Only' word added as suffix. **

## Comments

https://uploads.disquscdn.c... in case of a new form where the initial value of the filed is null, I am getting the error(screenshot attached)

Then,you might not be enabled macros.

Thank you for sharing code.

Is it possible to write Rupees *Before* the currency is converted into words

e.g. Rupees Hundred Only

Currently it shows Hundred Rupees Only

I have added " Only" to the expression builder

i.e. =ConvertCurrencyToEnglish([MyTextBoxName])) & " Only"

The reason for this request is that after money roundoff act, In Invoice or PO grandtotal, amount is always round off. hence conversion of paisa to words is not needed.

Thank you.

Sorry for the previous post, Kindly assist on how i can format the Code in Rupees for the convert of number to word in access to a local currency
