Spell number In Indian Currency System Using Function (Number into words)

Posted by Sriram Sanka on May 20, 2011


As we all know We can convert number into words Using ‘Jsp’ format string in to_char function.

ind> select to_char(to_date(‘250′,’J’),’JSP’) from dual;

TO_CHAR(TO_DATE(‘
—————–
TWO HUNDRED FIFTY

1 row selected.

ind> select to_char(to_date(‘259′,’J’),’JSP’) from dual;

TO_CHAR(TO_DATE(‘259’,
———————-
TWO HUNDRED FIFTY-NINE

1 row selected.

ind> select to_char(to_date(‘9999′,’J’),’JSP’) from dual;

TO_CHAR(TO_DATE(‘9999′,’J’),’JSP’)
————————————–
NINE THOUSAND NINE HUNDRED NINETY-NINE

1 row selected.

But It has some limitations….See
ind> select to_char(to_date(‘250.25′,’J’),’JSP’) from dual;
select to_char(to_date(‘250.25′,’J’),’JSP’) from dual
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01830: date format picture ends before converting entire input string

ind> select to_char(to_date(‘9999999999.99′,’J’),’JSP’) from dual;
select to_char(to_date(‘9999999999.99′,’J’),’JSP’) from dual
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01854: julian date must be between 1 and 5373484

We can avoid this By creating one Function .
This is similar to Ask Tom Spell number

ind> select spell_number(‘9999999999.99’) from dual;

SPELL_NUMBER(‘9999999999.99’)
——————————————————————————–
nine billion nine hundred ninety-nine million nine hundred ninety-nine thousand
nine hundred ninety-nine

1 row selected.

ind> select into_rupees(‘9999999999.99’) from dual;

INTO_RUPEES(‘9999999999.99’)
——————————————————————————–
Nine Arab Ninety-Nine Crore Ninety-Nine Lakh Ninety-Nine Thousand Nine Hundred N
inety-Nine and Paise Ninety-Nine.

You can find this into_rupees script at Indian Rupees

Thank you 🙂
