[Solved] SpellNumber in Calc Basic

Post by LaMancha »

I got a VBA from Excel which works well in Excel. I want to put it in Calc macro. The function works except the case where dollar is zero and or cents is zero. Macro does not recognize the case when dollar or cent is "". Below is the macro. Hope that someone can help

Code: Select all

REM  *****  BASIC  *****

'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 = Str(Dollars)
        Case "One "
            Dollars = "One Dollar "
         Case Else
            Dollars = Dollars & " Dollars "
    End Select
        If Dollars = "" Then
         Select Case Cents
        Case ""
            Cents = ""
        Case "One "
            Cents = "One Cent Only"

              Case Else
            Cents = "and " & Cents & "Cents Only"
    End Select
        End If
    SpellNumber = Dollars & Cents
End Function
      
' Converts a number from 100-999 into text

Re: SpellNumber in Calc Basic

Post by B Marcelly »

Use a typed variable when you only need a specific type of data.
Here, an empty variant is not equal to an empty string.
Replace the first declaration by:

Code: Select all

Dim Dollars As String, Cents As String, Temp As String
Instead of this naive and inefficient code, use function MONEYTEXT, provided by extension Numbertext.

Thank for your reply. Moneytext did work but it appears the word U.S. dollar rather than dollar only. The problem is just as stated for the variant is not empty string.

As far as I know spellcurr is an Excel function which is not available in OpenOffice

This extension may help
Numbertext

If the code needs tweaking, you should be able to extract and debug that with little difficulty.
