vb program to convert a number to wordings(upto 1000)

I am going to make a function to do this.
I have been wanting to make something which can do this for a LONG time.
But I'll go into millions probably, for my own needs. ;)

By the way, I
have heard that UK and US millions/billions work differently...?
I've never seen this though.
How it'll work is:
10 - Ten
100 - One hundred
1,000 - One thousand
10,000 - Ten thousand
100,000 - One hundred thousand
1,000,000 - One million
10,000,000 - Ten million
100,000,000 - One hundred million

May take me a while to do this...

Finally done!
This is a monster of a function, which relies on 4 other functions!

So I'm attaching a link to DL it from my server, along with an example VB program to show you how to use it, and show you it in action.

Here is an example screenshot:
(Can't get ImageShack to work right now, so that's hosted on my server aswell)

You can DL the VB project + EXE here:

For those of you who don't already know, my server has a very unreliable connection, so if it doesn't work for you, try again in an hour or so. ^-'
