    Hi Friends,

    I've read it here before a sql*plus program that decodes
    numbers to words. I've searched all topics in this forums
    but I can't find it anymore. Can somebody help me please...

    Could you be more specific, how should I understand "decodes numbers to words"?

    I want to decode the amount in a table
    say 111.11 to "One Hundred Eleven Dollars and Eleven Cents". Had someone done this?

    :-) I could suggest at most this:

    SQL> select to_char(111.11,'$99999.99') "Char" from dual;

    Char
    ----------
    $111.11

    1 row selected.

    patawa ka naman (thanks julian for being
    attentive to my question)

    Actually I want to develop a oracle report program
    that prints checks. The requirement is that
    the amount will also be printed in words.

    yes! that's the one. Is JSP your function?

    No, JSP is not my function. It is Oracle's. Jsp-Julian date in spelled out format.

    Thanks for the info! I didn't know that trick. It works on 8.1.7.
