    Convert String

    Hello
    I have some trouble interpreting a string and I hope you can help me.
    I have to convert a string, or a word in a number. Like five hundred fifty in 550. I dont know exactly how to do it.
    I was thinking to try to analize each word, but this seems like a huge code. Or i was thinking that maybe you can check in a table, but then the table should be huge(numbers should go up to millions)
    Is there a smarter way? What do you suggest?
    Thank you very much

    Yes, but not the all nembers between 0 and 1000000.
    only the following:
    1 to 20 ( 0 to 20)
    30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90
    100
    1000
    1000000

    Here is a thread that may be helpful: http://www.codeguru.com/forum/showthread.php?t=506579. But be aware that this conversion probably can't be done in a few lines of code.
