Hello help, I love your formula but I would like to update the formula so that it stays like the example in capital letters. Thanks a lot.
Example:
USD 121,500.56 = One Hundred Twenty One Thousand Five Hundred Dollars and Fifty Six Cents
***ONE HUNDRED TWENTY ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED AND 56/100 US DOLLARS

USD 121,500.00 = One Hundred Twenty One Thousand Five Hundred Dollars and No Cents
***ONE HUNDRED TWENTY ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED AND 00/100 US DOLLARS
