Convert Number to Words in Business Central

Posted on by 71
Hi All,
I've written an action to convert a number to words using a codeunit, but I'm encountering an /Index Out of Bounds/ error. I am not sure why this issue is occurring and would greatly appreciate any assistance or solutions you can provide.
For example, 5000 -> 5 thousand.
 
 
page 50323 CustomerInfo
{
    ApplicationArea = All;
    Caption = 'CustomerInfo';
    PageType = List;
    SourceTable = Customer;
    UsageCategory = Lists;
    //InsertAllowed = true;
    //Permissions = tabledata Customer = R;
    InsertAllowed = true;
    DeleteAllowed = true;
    ModifyAllowed = true;
 
   
 
    actions
    {
        area(Processing)
        {
            group(Home)
            {
                action(/Get Number to words/)
                {
                    trigger OnAction()
                    var
                        myInt: Integer;
                        Words: Text;
                    begin
                        myInt := 45;
                        Words := ConvertNumberToWords(myInt);
                        MESSAGE('Number in Words: %1', Words);
                    end;
 
                }
            }
        }
    }
 
    local procedure AmountToWords(Amount: Integer): Text
    var
        Word: Text;
    begin
        Word := FormatAmountInWords(Amount);
        exit(Word);
    end;
 
    local procedure FormatAmountInWords(Amount: Integer): Text
    var
        WholePart: Integer;
        FractionPart: Integer;
        Words: Text;
    begin
        WholePart := Amount;
        //FractionPart := Round((Amount - WholePart) * 100);
 
        Words := ConvertNumberToWords(WholePart) + ' Rupees';
        // if FractionPart > 0 then
        //     Words := Words + ' and ' + ConvertNumberToWords(FractionPart) + ' Paise';
 
        exit(Words);
    end;
 
    local procedure ConvertNumberToWords(Number: Integer): Text
    var
        Units: array[19] of Text[10];
        Tens: array[10] of Text[10];
        Hundreds: array[5] of Text[10];
        Result: Text;
        HValue: Integer;
        TValue: Integer;
    begin
       
        Units[0] := 'Zero';
        Units[1] := 'One';
        Units[2] := 'Two';
        Units[3] := 'Three';
        Units[4] := 'Four';
        Units[5] := 'Five';
        Units[6] := 'Six';
        Units[7] := 'Seven';
        Units[8] := 'Eight';
        Units[9] := 'Nine';
        Units[10] := 'Ten';
        Units[11] := 'Eleven';
        Units[12] := 'Twelve';
        Units[13] := 'Thirteen';
        Units[14] := 'Fourteen';
        Units[15] := 'Fifteen';
        Units[16] := 'Sixteen';
        Units[17] := 'Seventeen';
        Units[18] := 'Eighteen';
        Units[19] := 'Nineteen';
 
        Tens[2] := 'Twenty';
        Tens[3] := 'Thirty';
        Tens[4] := 'Forty';
        Tens[5] := 'Fifty';
        Tens[6] := 'Sixty';
        Tens[7] := 'Seventy';
        Tens[8] := 'Eighty';
        Tens[9] := 'Ninety';
 
        if Number < 20 then
            Result := Units[Number]
        else if (Number < 100) and (Number > 19) then
            Result := Tens[Number DIV 10] + ' ' + Units[Number MOD 10]
        else if (Number > 100) and (Number < 999) then
            HValue := Number MOD 100;
            Result := Units[Number DIV 100] + 'Hundred' + ConvertNumberToWords(HValue);
        if (Number > 999) and (Number < 9999) then
            TValue := Number MOD 1000;
            HValue := HValue MOD 100;
            Result := Units[Number DIV 1000] + 'Thousand' + ConvertNumberToWords(TValue) + ConvertNumberToWords(HValue);
 
        exit(Result);
 
    end;

    Hi,
     
    Don't create custom code for it.
     
    Refer Report 1401 and check how Microsoft is using FormatNoText method to convert amount in words.
     
    The function actual is placed in report 10400 "Check Translation Management"
     
    Regards,
    Saurav Dhyani
