### Excel Functions : Convert Numbers into Words

Modified code given below for those who want to use it. Currency inputs are optional and you will not need to input currency details in case you are using it for Indian Currency. Still this can be used for any currency provided you give currency inputs.
```unction SpellCurr(ByVal MyNumber, _
Optional MyCurrency As String = "Rupee", _
Optional MyCurrencyPlace As String = "P", _
Optional MyCurrencyDecimals As String = "Paisa", _
Optional MyCurrencyDecimalsPlace As String = "S")
'*******************************************************************
'* Based on SpellNumbers UDF by Microsoft, Which handles only Dollars as currency                                *
'* UDF modfied by Yogesh Gupta, [email protected], Ygblogs.blogspot.com on July 21, 2009                      *
'* UDF modified on September 04, 2009 to make currency inputs optional, by default it will use Indian Currency   *
'* This modified UDF can be used for any currency in case you provide for currency inputs                        *
'* User can define the Prefix and Sufix place for Currency and CurrencyDecimals                                  *
'* MyNumber = Numeric Value you need to convert into words                                                       *
'* MyCurrency = Name of your Currency - i.e. Dollar for USA                                                      *
'* MyCurrencyPlace = Prefix or Suffix the currency, use "P" for Prefix and "S" for Suffix                        *
'* MyCurrencyDecimals = Name of your Currency Decimals - i.e. Cent for USA                                       *
'* MyCurrencyDecimalsPlace = Prefix or Suffix the currency decimals, use "P" for Prefix and "S" for Suffix       *
