Hi Hassanuddin,

Consider using this adjusted SpellNumber function:
```Function NTT(ByVal MyNumber)
Dim Temp

If Len(MyNumber) = 1 Then
Temp = GetDigit(MyNumber)
GoTo exitFunction
End If

If Len(MyNumber) > 2 Then
Temp = GetTens(Left(MyNumber, 2)) & " Hundred "
End If

Temp = Temp & GetTens(Right(MyNumber, 2))

exitFunction:
NTT = Temp
End Function

' Converts a number from 10 to 99 into text.
Function GetTens(TensText)
Dim Result As String
Result = ""           ' Null out the temporary function value.
If Val(Left(TensText, 1)) = 1 Then   ' If value between 10-19...
Select Case Val(TensText)
Case 10: Result = "Ten"
Case 11: Result = "Eleven"
Case 12: Result = "Twelve"
Case 13: Result = "Thirteen"
Case 14: Result = "Fourteen"
Case 15: Result = "Fifteen"
Case 16: Result = "Sixteen"
Case 17: Result = "Seventeen"
Case 18: Result = "Eighteen"
Case 19: Result = "Nineteen"
Case Else
End Select
Else                                 ' If value between 20-99...
Select Case Val(Left(TensText, 1))
Case 2: Result = "Twenty "
Case 3: Result = "Thirty "
Case 4: Result = "Forty "
Case 5: Result = "Fifty "
Case 6: Result = "Sixty "
Case 7: Result = "Seventy "
Case 8: Result = "Eighty "
Case 9: Result = "Ninety "
Case Else
End Select
Result = Result & GetDigit _
(Right(TensText, 1))  ' Retrieve ones place.
End If
GetTens = Result
End Function

' Converts a number from 1 to 9 into text.
Function GetDigit(Digit)
Select Case Val(Digit)
Case 1: GetDigit = "One"
Case 2: GetDigit = "Two"
Case 3: GetDigit = "Three"
Case 4: GetDigit = "Four"
Case 5: GetDigit = "Five"
Case 6: GetDigit = "Six"
Case 7: GetDigit = "Seven"
Case 8: GetDigit = "Eight"
Case 9: GetDigit = "Nine"
Case Else: GetDigit = ""
End Select
End Function
```

Then in Excel use the formula:
=ntt(DAG(A1)) & " " & BEGINLETTERS(TEKST(A1;"Mmmm")) & " " &ntt(JAAR(A1))
or if you are using a non dutch version:
=ntt(DAY(A1)) & " " & PROPER(TEXT(A1,"Mmmm")) & " " &ntt(YEAR(A1))

Kom je er zo uit?

Best regards,
Trowa
