Hi All,

In SAP 2005B, Can we change the 'amount in words' for cheque printing.

Example -

If amount is Rs.150000.

By default it comes as - 'One hundred fifty thousand only' but our client want it as ' One lakh fifty thousand only'.

Is there any solution/work around for it?

Hi Abhishek,

Sorry to let you know that this is a system limitation.

The current system logic cannot support a counting unit that

does not follow the standard rules (exponent of thousand).

As a workaround (in order for your customer to print the amount in the

desired format), they can add a user defined field to the title of the

marketing documents, and fill it with the desired amount in word

manually before printing. They should also modify the default printing

template and link the total amount field on the template to the UDF they
