Thanks. I'll try it. I just did and it doesn't work. I am probably asking the wrong question. If the selection is in words, e.g., "ONE" without the quotes, how do I convert it to the number "1" without the quotes? VAL(Selection) does not work. And if the defined term is a number, e.g., "2" without the quotes, how do I convert it to the word, "TWO" without the quotes?

the only way i could think of doin that would be to set up an array full with the word and the number and then jst using the array to convert back and forth other then that i dont think there is a function built in to do what you want. good luck

well if it was there back then im sure there is away you can do it. i didnt relize you where talking about vba sorry. i dont know any of the extra stuff they add into vba really sorry
