Answer:

Solve 1:

I have written a function similar to what you want, but some modification need to be done. CurrToStrFunc(1234.56, 'Dollar', 'Cent');

unit CurrToStrProc;

interface

uses
  SysUtils;

function CurrToStrFunc(InputCur: Currency; InputDollar: string; InputCent: string):
  string;
function Length_1(InputString: string): string;
function Length_2(InputString: string): string;
function Length_3(InputString: string): string;
function Length_4(InputString: string): string;
function Length_5(InputString: string): string;
function Length_6(InputString: string): string;
function Length_7(InputString: string): string;
function Length_8(InputString: string): string;
function Length_9(InputString: string): string;

implementation
