In Calc, when i use =moneytext() to calculate currency number to word, like 123 means One Hundred and Twenty Three its work properly, But when the currency number 423977 in the word shows "four hundred and twenty-three thousand, nine hundred and seventy-seven" But i want to show Four Lakh Twenty Three Thousand Nine Hundred and Seventy Seven

Please any one help me in this regard...

As @karolus has indicated, your question does not indicate correct use of the MONEYTEXT function in the NumberText extension. To obtain a number (in cell A1) in Indian rupees requires =MONEYTEXT(A1;"INR"). Please refer this answer for further details.

Having said that, it appears there is no support in the NUMBERTEXT function for the Indian Numbering System. There may not even be any support for this numbering system in Calc or LO as a whole. There is currently no open (or closed) bug relating to this issue.
