Is there anyone out there that knows if MS Word and/or Excel is capable of converting a numeric such as "1000" to it's alpha equivalent of "one thousand?" (similar to the way a check is written, although the application will be for contracts as opposed to checks). Thanks!

Hey Rimmer!

Thanks a lot for searching that fact-toid down for us.

I've wondered about that for a number of years,
and didn't find the answer.
