Thanks to Kit Baum, a new program -num2words- is available from the SSC Archives.  -num2words- requires Stata 9.2 and can be downloaded by typing:    ssc install num2words

-num2words- converts numbers (stored in a numeric variable) to words (stored in a string variable).  It might be used to convert numbers to text for insertion in graph or table titles, captions, or labels; value or variable labels; characteristics or notes; or  this utility can convert numbers to words for inclusion in the text of a document created from Stata via commands like -file write-, -texdoc- (from SSC), or -rtfutil- (from SSC). An example of this last point is on my webpage at:
