Modification of Don Wieland's CF to include an 'and' after hundreds where appropriate.
Thanks for the original Don.

Updated Aug 10th 2006. error in formula for numbers over a million, plus now gives :
Seven Million, Six Hundred and Fifty Four Thousand and Twenty One pounds
rather than:
Seven Million, Six Hundred and Fifty Four Thousand, Twenty One pounds

Better for those of us in the UK!
