**Convert number to text with Text function**

If you are familiar with Microsoft Excel's formulas, you can convert numbers in cells to text with Text function.

If you just only want to convert the number to text without any formatting, you can use the formula: *= Text (A1, “0”)*;

1. In cell E1, please enter the formula* = Text (A1, “0”)*.

2. Then press** Enter** key. And select the cell E1, drag the fill handle over the range of cells that you want to apply this formula.

3. As the data is formula, you can change the formulas to values. Copy the cells and right-click where you want to paste the values and select **Paste special**. Select **values** and your values will be displayed as text as below.

If you want to display the leading zero in numbers, you can use this formula: *=Text (A1, “0000”)*; such as convert 23 to 0023.

As the above steps, if you apply this formula, you will get the following result:

And if you want to convert the numbers to text which keep several decimal digits, you can use this formula: *=Text (A1, “0.000”)*. Such as convert 23 to 23.000.

Also with above steps, if you apply this formula, you will get the result as the following screenshots:

**Note**: you can define the text style. For example, if you want to convert the numbers to text with a telephone number format, you can replace the "000" with "00-00000", or others.

Microsoft Excel's **Format Cells** command is also able to convert numbers to text.

ex: 2 -> two

can u give the answer pls

tx alot

I also want to know the answer. Thanks

For Example it is 5 digits.

In the cell type any 5 digit number for example 59427.

Now in a different cell convert this into decimal places of 5 digits i.e. 59427/10000 = 0.59427

Now you can use the function "MID" to break this into 5 different digits i.e. 5, 9, 4, 2, 7

By using the if formula convert these into words like =IF(A3=5,"Fifty ","") and finally use the function "CONCATENATE" to bring these together.

This is the only way possible.

If you need I can send you the sample excel sheet.
