Sorry about the cross post
But heres a fun one for you all. I have small application that at the
end of a month is to get account information from a accounts table and
print off cheques for the person we owe money to. Now the select is easy
enough, but as you know cheques appear in the folloing format;
Pay: John Doe the sum of $400.78
Four Hundred Dollars and 78 Cents
Signed: Person With Loads Of
Now the amount we have to pay the client is in a mysql database and is
stored in numerical format, i.e 400.78 (and a currency table ids it as
being in USD)
The problem is how do I covert 400.78 into Four Hundred and Seventy
Eight Cents, or for that matter, any format of numbers into their
equivalent english format. So 40,000.78 would become Fourty Thousand and
Seventy Eight Cents.
This is the only problem that is baffeling the hell out of me as the
logic behind it weird.
Any help, ideas on how to do this in PHP with a mysql dbase would be
welcome (looking at Numbers2Words Class at the moment)
Thanks in advance.
