### Post

Hi,

I've been struggled to find ways to make FM pro 12 show the right Capital form in Chinese, I need you help to let FM pro show  the RIGHT capital form of a Chinese numeral. ( Filemaker pro 12 does support Japanese Kanji, but that is not Chinese Character and the way write in Chinese )

=======INSTRUCTION=============

In china, every 4 digits are a unit, such as ten hundred, ten thousand  ( in english, every 3 digits are a unit such as a hundred, a thousand ), here are rules,

Basic unit of the capital form of a Chinese numeral

•           "0" zero called "LING" "0"
•
•           "10" ten called "SHI" "10"
•
•           "100" a hundred called "BAI","100"
•
•           "1,000" a thousand called "QIAN", "1000"
•
•           "10,000" ten thousand called " WAN ", "1,0000"
•
•           "100,000,000"a hundred million called "YI" "1,0000,0000"

examples,

•           123 in Chinese called "1 BAI 2 SHI 3"
•
•           1023 in Chinese called "1 QIAN 0 2 SHI 3"
•
•           12300 in Chinese called "1 WAN 2 QIAN 3 BAI "
•
•           10,2300 in Chinese called "1 SHI WAN 2 QIAN 3 BAI"
•
•           10,0023 in Chinese called "1 SHI WAN 0 2 SHI 3"
•
•           10,0203 in Chinese called "1 SHI WAN LING 2 BAI 0 3"

If there is a 0 or more between two digits ( digit not 0), 0 should be pronounced only once.

FOR Chinese currency unit and Chinese Capital is very similar, but there are "YUAN" "JIAO" "FEN" in the middle, 1 YUAN = 10 JIAO = 100 FEN, YUAN is the basic Unit, like Dollar and Yen.

•           ¥1.23, called 1 YUAN 2 JIAO 3 FEN
•
•           ¥10,0020.33, called 1 QIAN 0 2 SHI YUAN 3 JIAO ZHENG

•                ¥123.00, called 1 BAI 2 SHI 3 YUAN ZHENG
•
•                ¥120.03, called 1 BAI 2 SHI YUAN 0 3 FEN
•

If there is a digit ( not 0 ) in FEN, then the write form is end with FEN,

If there is 0 in FEN, then the write form is end with ZHENG

Thank you for reading, I really hope this could be done here, or you could just give me some instructions or script that I could edit it.

Hope Filemaker 13 would fix this issue.
