What's new   Download   Home  Ads

This utility makes it possible to capture a number in Microsoft® Word, configure its respective SpellNumber (write-out number, as in check writing protection) through a popup user interface, and insert it back in Word or send it to the Windows clipboard to be immediately pasted into any Word place or into another Windows application. All this can be done with only two keystrokes. It is programmed in Microsoft® Visual Basic® for Application (VBA) and optionally available as COM Add-in (dll), EXE Add-in (dot/exe), or Add-in (dot), may be useful for Word interface user and VBA programmers. See the pictures below.

It consists basically of only one file (WordSpellNumber.dll, WordSpellNumber.exe, or that can be installed automatically using one of the installer package files available below to download. Except for the DLL, if you choose COM Add-in, no other setting is saved in the Windows Register. Its setting is saved in WordSpellNumber.ini,,, and files that are created and maintained by the proper utility. You also can uninstall it automatically, leaving no mess on your Windows Register or disc.

It has multiple settings to fit several ways of spelling fractions. For example:

$ 205.02 (two hundred five dollars and two cents)
$ 205.02 (two hundred five and 2/100 dollars)
$ 205.02 (two hundred five dollars and two pennies)
£ 205,02 (two hundred five pounds and two pence)
€ 205,02 (two hundred five euros and two cents)
P 206,02 (two hundred six pesos and two centavos only)
206,02 (two hundred six and 02/100 only)
205,02 % (two hundred five point zero two per cent)
205.02 g (two hundred five gallons and two hundredths of gallon)
205.02 (two hundred five, and two hundredths) - Pure number, no unit

Note: The Word Useful Tools utility spells number too. It hasn’t user interface and the SpellNumber setting is made inserting symbols after the number in the proper Word.

Note: The above link downloads the installer and uninstaller package programmed in VBA in a DOC duly converted to EXE by the DOCtoEXE to make the installation easier for macro and Windows laymen; however, if you're an expert and for some reason prefer an installer and uninstaller package in open ZIP format, click here. With this zip package you can install it in three ways: (1) Simply initiate the Install.exe that loads the same DOC in Word without macro alert; (2) Extract the entire package to a folder and initiate the DOC, enabling the macros in Word and using 123 as password, or (3) Install the DLL manually.

Add-in Options to Install:

This utility can be available to be installed in three options of add-ins: EXE Add-in, COM Add-in, or Word Add-in. COM Add-in and Word Add-in run on Windows in the same process or memory space of Word and are well detailed technologies in Word documentation and good books about VBA, while EXE Add-in is a special name here for a mix of those two technologies where the same VBA code is run in separate EXE process and a small Word Add-in makes the connection between the two processes.
