If you wish your replacement text to include a 'spelled out' equivalent of the Arabic numeral, precede or follow the number with

•<%%> (for both numeric and spelled out versions of the percentage amount).

•Append 'UC' or 'lc' to direct Pathagoras to return UPPER CASE or lower case 'spelled out' value.

(E.g., [Contingency Fee]<<%%UC>> or [Contingency Fee]<<%%lc>>)

If <%%> is placed to the left of the number, the 'spelled-out' amount is the 'primary' value, and the formatted number appears in parentheses. If <%%> is placed at the end of the number, the spelled out number is the primary value, and the 'spelled-out' amount appears in parenthesis.

Example:

Document text:

We agree to represent you in this matter for a fee of [Contingency]<%%> of the total amount recovered |

If, when you display the IDB screen and type in 33.33 beside the variable [Contingency], the text will become:

We agree to represent you in this matter for a fee of 33 and 1/3% (Thirty-three and 1/3%) of the total amount recovered. |

Optionally, can manually type the <%> or <%%> markers in the 'value' column of the Instant Database screen. The same results will occur because the markers are transferred into the document and Pathagoras processes them as if they were pre-placed.

Examples:

Variable (in document and Replacement Text

on left side of IDB Screen) __________(right side of IDB Screen)

[Contingency Fee] |
33.33<%%> |

[Fee] |
<%%>40 |

Results:

Document text:

We agree to represent you in this matter for a fee of [Contingency Fee] of the total amount recovered |

will become:

We agree to represent you in this matter for a fee of 33 and 1/3% (Thirty-three and 1/3%) of the total amount recovered. |

Document text:

We are pleased to offer to perform the collections work for [Fee] of any amounts recovered. |

will become:

We are pleased to offer to perform the collections work for forty percent (40%) of any amounts recovered. |
