    That's how you say it- not spell it out.

    Yes, you're right. I must've had a brain cramp when I wrote that.

    Thank you for pointing it out!

    Re: spelling out a number

    I'm the one with the brain cramp, then. How would you spell it, if not "one million, four hundred thousand"?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I guess saying the figures one by one, something like:
    "one - comma - four - oh - oh - ... "
    or "one - four - five zeros"
    No?
