How Do I Convert Figures To Word In Pages / Numbers?

Is it possible to to apply a formula or run a script which enable me to automatically convert figures to word. For example, “234.00” gets converted to “Two Hundred Thirty Four Only”

If possible would it work the same way in both Pages and numbers or we have to have different approach?

    There is no easy way to do that. Some people have tried writing complex scripts or making special tables for lookups. You can read about some of that here: https://discussions.apple.com/message/25313858#25313858. But a lot of those efforts are old and I’m not sure how well they would work today.

    If you decide to go forward with adapting or building a solution for this, keep in mind that it will take a while and weigh that against just doing it by hand each time. I guess it depends on how often this is needed or if you could possibly do without it. The only use for this I can think of is to write out checks, but there are specific apps and service for that so I can’t imagine you’d be using Numbers or Pages for that.
