In this post we are going to learn **How to convert number to words in java.**Here we will read a number from the console and converts the number to its word form. Example, if the number entered is 65, the program should print sixty five. For input 9535, it should print nine thousand five hundred thirty five and so on.

**I have checked above program for few int datatype inputs but you can check it for any input within Integer.MAX_VALUE-1 range. if you want, program should work for larger than Integer MAX range then you have to modified this program to take input in either long or BigInteger.**
