Have you ever thought of an Excel formula that will convert Numbers to Words? i.e. A formula that can convert the number **456,571** into **Four Hundred and Fifty Six Thousand Five Hundred and Seventy One**.

In this blog post, I am sharing two Excel formulas that can convert Numbers in Words.

### Pete M’s Formula

=CHOOSE(LEFT(TEXT(A1,"000000000"))+1,,"One","Two","Three","Four","Five","Six","Seven","Eight","Nine")&IF(--LEFT(TEXT(A1,"000000000"))=0,,IF(AND(--MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),2,1)=0,--MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),3,1)=0)," Hundred"," Hundred and "))&CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),2,1)+1,,,"Twenty ","Thirty ","Forty ","Fifty ","Sixty ","Seventy ","Eighty ","Ninety ")&IF(--MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),2,1)<>1,CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),3,1)+1,,"One","Two","Three","Four","Five","Six","Seven","Eight","Nine"),CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),3,1)+1,"Ten","Eleven","Twelve","Thirteen","Fourteen","Fifteen","Sixteen","Seventeen","Eighteen","Nineteen"))&IF((--LEFT(TEXT(A1,"000000000"))+MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),2,1)+MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),3,1))=0,,IF(AND((--MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),4,1)+MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),5,1)+MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),6,1)+MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),7,1))=0,(--MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),8,1)+RIGHT(TEXT(A1,"000000000")))>0)," Million and "," Million "))&CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),4,1)+1,,"One","Two","Three","Four","Five","Six","Seven","Eight","Nine")&IF(--MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),4,1)=0,,IF(AND(--MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),5,1)=0,--MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),6,1)=0)," Hundred "," Hundred and "))&CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),5,1)+1,,,"Twenty ","Thirty ","Forty ","Fifty ","Sixty ","Seventy ","Eighty ","Ninety ")&IF(--MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),5,1)<>1,CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),6,1)+1,,"One","Two","Three","Four","Five","Six","Seven","Eight","Nine"),CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),6,1)+1,"Ten","Eleven","Twelve","Thirteen","Fourteen","Fifteen","Sixteen","Seventeen","Eighteen","Nineteen"))&IF((--MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),4,1)+MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),5,1)+MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),6,1))=0,,IF(OR((--MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),7,1)+MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),8,1)+RIGHT(TEXT(A1,"000000000")))=0,--MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),7,1)<>0)," Thousand "," Thousand and "))&CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),7,1)+1,,"One","Two","Three","Four","Five","Six","Seven","Eight","Nine")&IF(--MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),7,1)=0,,IF(AND(--MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),8,1)=0,--RIGHT(TEXT(A1,"000000000"))=0)," Hundred "," Hundred and "))&CHOOSE(MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),8,1)+1,,,"Twenty ","Thirty ","Forty ","Fifty ","Sixty ","Seventy ","Eighty ","Ninety ")&IF(--MID(TEXT(A1,"000000000"),8,1)<>1,CHOOSE(RIGHT(TEXT(A1,"000000000"))+1,,"One","Two","Three","Four","Five","Six","Seven","Eight","Nine"),CHOOSE(RIGHT(TEXT(A1,"000000000"))+1,"Ten","Eleven","Twelve","Thirteen","Fourteen","Fifteen","Sixteen","Seventeen","Eighteen","Nineteen"))

This awesome formula was developed by Pete M, a commercial manager/consultant, and was shared with the public by the Excel MVP Leila Gharani in her blog post.

**Note:**
The formula assumes that you have the number in the cell A1.
The formula will ignore numbers after decimal.

### Chandoo’s Formula

Here is a similar formula created by the Excel MVP Chandoo that will convert Numbers into English Words. This formula uses the LET function which is currently available to Office 365 subscribers.

=LET(

th, INT(A1/1000),

th.h, MOD(th/100, 10),

th.t, MOD(th, 100),

th.tens1, INT(th.t/10),

th.tens2, MOD(th.t,10),

h,MOD(A1/100,10),

t, MOD(A1,100),

tens1, INT(t/10),

tens2, MOD(t,10),

tys, {"twenty","thirty","fourty","fifty","sixty","seventy","eighty","ninety"},

upto19, {"one","two","three","four","five","six","seven","eight",

"nine","ten","eleven","twelve","thirteen","fourteen","fifteen",

"sixteen","seventeen","eighteen","nineteen"},

CONCAT(IF(th<1, "", IF(th.h>=1,INDEX(upto19,th.h)&" hundred ","") &

IF(th.t<1,"", IF(th.tens1<2,INDEX(upto19, th.t), INDEX(tys,th.tens1-1) & IF(th.tens2>=1,"-"&INDEX(upto19,th.tens2),"")))&

" thousand "),

IF(h>=1,INDEX(upto19,h)&" hundred ",""),

IF(t<1,"", IF(tens1<2,INDEX(upto19, t), INDEX(tys,tens1-1)& IF(tens2>=1,"-"&INDEX(upto19,tens2),"")))))

Chandoo, in his blog post has explained this formula in detail and has also done a video on the same.

Note:This formula works up to numbers 999,999 only and will ignore numbers after decimal.
