Text up to a Hundred
Use this grid to enter words for each number between one and 99.

In Languages that do not have genders, use the left-hand column only, as shown in the illustration. In Languages where each number has separate masculine and feminine forms to agree with Currency names of different genders, enter the masculine form in the left-hand column and the feminine form in the right-hand column.

Hundreds and Tens Conjunction
Enter here the word that is to appear between the hundreds and the tens in any amount. In English, the word "and" is used (for example, one hundred and twenty).

Decimals Conjunction
Enter here the word that is to appear between the Major and Minor Currency amounts. The Minor Currency is the one hundredth part of the Currency (for example, pence, cents or öre). In English, the word "and" can again be used (for example five pounds and forty pence), but you can also leave the field empty (five pounds forty pence).

Trailing Text
Enter here any text that is to appear after the amount. For example, some users might require the word "only" to appear after the amount on their cheques.

Zero
Enter here the word to be used for zero.

Print Currency
Use these options to specify whether the word for the Currency should appear before the amount or after it. In the latter case, it will appear before the Minor Currency amount. For example, ?5.40 can be written as pounds five forty pence or as five pounds forty pence. The word for the Currency itself ("pounds" in the example) will be taken from the Currency register, also in the System module.

The Minor Currency In
The Minor Currency is the one hundredth part of the Currency (for example, pence, cents or öre). Use these options to specify whether the amount is to be printed in words or figures. For example, ?5.40 can be written as five pounds forty pence or as five pounds 40 pence. The word for the Minor Currency (e.g. the word "pence") will be taken from the Currency register.

Cut Decimals
Select this option if you do not want Minor Currency amounts to be printed. For example, if you are using this option, an amount of ?5.40 will be printed as five pounds. Unlike the other fields and check boxes described above, this option affects amounts both in words and in figures. You should only use it with Currencies where there are no Minor Currency values e.g. in Byelorussia.
