Convert Numbers to Words

Could someone please tell me where am I supposed to put this code. Actually
my project has two forms. I created a new module and have put the following
code sent by someone. All the function declaration statments (first lines)
e.g.

Public Function ConvertCurrencyToEnglish(ByVal MyNumber As Double) As String

Private Function ConvertHundreds(ByVal MyNumber As String) As String

etc.

are underlined (blue) and it says "Statement is not valid in namespace".


Here is the OLD REPLY --->>

Below is the VB.Net code. As Cor said, the changes were minimal...it took me
5min or less the modify it.

Public Function ConvertCurrencyToEnglish(ByVal MyNumber As Double) As String
Dim Temp As String
Dim Dollars, Cents As String
Dim DecimalPlace, Count As Integer
Dim Place(9) As String
Dim Numb As String
Place(2) = " Thousand " : Place(3) = " Million " : Place(4) = "
Billion " : Place(5) = " Trillion "
' Convert Numb to a string, trimming extra spaces.
Numb = Trim(Str(MyNumber))
' Find decimal place.
DecimalPlace = InStr(Numb, ".")
' If we find decimal place...
If DecimalPlace > 0 Then
' Convert cents
Temp = Left(Mid(Numb, DecimalPlace + 1) & "00", 2)
Cents = ConvertTens(Temp)
' Strip off cents from remainder to convert.
Numb = Trim(Left(Numb, DecimalPlace - 1))
End If
Count = 1
Do While Numb <> ""
' Convert last 3 digits of Numb to English dollars.
Temp = ConvertHundreds(Right(Numb, 3))
If Temp <> "" Then Dollars = Temp & Place(Count) & Dollars
If Len(Numb) > 3 Then
' Remove last 3 converted digits from Numb.
Numb = Left(Numb, Len(Numb) - 3)
Else
Numb = ""
End If
Count = Count + 1
Loop

' Clean up dollars.
Select Case Dollars
Case "" : Dollars = "No Dollars"
Case "One" : Dollars = "One Dollar"
Case Else : Dollars = Dollars & " Dollars"
End Select

' Clean up cents.
Select Case Cents
Case "" : Cents = " And No Cents"
Case "One" : Cents = " And One Cent"
Case Else : Cents = " And " & Cents & " Cents"
End Select
ConvertCurrencyToEnglish = Dollars & Cents
End Function

Private Function ConvertHundreds(ByVal MyNumber As String) As String
Dim Result As String
' Exit if there is nothing to convert.
If Val(MyNumber) = 0 Then Exit Function
' Append leading zeros to number.
MyNumber = Right("000" & MyNumber, 3)
' Do we have a hundreds place digit to convert?
If Left(MyNumber, 1) <> "0" Then
Result = ConvertDigit(Left(MyNumber, 1)) & " Hundred "
End If
' Do we have a tens place digit to convert?
If Mid(MyNumber, 2, 1) <> "0" Then
Result = Result & ConvertTens(Mid(MyNumber, 2))
Else
' If not, then convert the ones place digit.
Result = Result & ConvertDigit(Mid(MyNumber, 3))
End If
ConvertHundreds = Trim(Result)
End Function

Private Function ConvertTens(ByVal MyTens As String) As String
Dim Result As String
' Is value between 10 and 19?
If Val(Left(MyTens, 1)) = 1 Then
Select Case Val(MyTens)
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
' .. otherwise it's between 20 and 99.
Select Case Val(Left(MyTens, 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
' Convert ones place digit.
Result = Result & ConvertDigit(Right(MyTens, 1))
End If
ConvertTens = Result
End Function

Private Function ConvertDigit(ByVal MyDigit As String) As String
Select Case Val(MyDigit)
Case 1 : ConvertDigit = "One"
Case 2 : ConvertDigit = "Two"
Case 3 : ConvertDigit = "Three"
Case 4 : ConvertDigit = "Four"
Case 5 : ConvertDigit = "Five"
Case 6 : ConvertDigit = "Six"
Case 7 : ConvertDigit = "Seven"
Case 8 : ConvertDigit = "Eight"
Case 9 : ConvertDigit = "Nine"
Case Else : ConvertDigit = ""
End Select
End Function
