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

<S> (for just a conversion to the spelled out version of the number) or

<SS> (for both short and spelled out versions of the number).

   The case of the markers (<SS> vs. <Ss> vs. <ss> controls the case of the spelled out value.

   The placement of the markers controls the placement of the 'spelled-out' value. If <SS> is placed first, the spelled out amount is the 'primary' value, and the number appears in parentheses. If <SS> is placed last, the number is the primary value, and the spelled-out value appears in parenthesis.

    Example:

Document text:

Thank you for your order of [quantity]<SS> widgets.

If, when you display the IDB screen and type in 65344 beside the variable [quantity], the text will become:

Thank you for your order of 65,344 (SIXTY FIVE THOUSAND, THREE HUNDRED FORTY-FOUR) widgets.

Document text:

Thank you for your order of <ss>[quantity] widgets.

If, when you display the IDB screen and type in 65344 beside the variable [quantity], the text will become:

Thank you for your order of s65,344 (sixty five thousand, three hundred forty-four) widgets.

 

lightbulbsmallOptionally, can manually type the <S> or <SS> 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
