I have included the \part command into my dissertation in \documentclass{report} which automatically uses Roman numerals: I, II, etc. as its counter.

Is it possible to change these to text/string counters: ONE, TWO, etc.?

Edit #1:

I used the first answer, but both work. However, I thought that \part was all CAPS, but it's not! So I used this:

\usepackage{fmtcount} \renewcommand{\thepart}{\Numberstring{part}}

to give "Part One" "Part Two" etc.

Use the fmtcount package and specify the part counter representation in the following way:

\usepackge{fmtcount}% http://ctan.org/pkg/fmtcount
\renewcommand{\thepart}{\NUMBERstring{part}}

Here is a minimal example:

enter image description here

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{fmtcount}
\renewcommand{\thepart}{\NUMBERstring{part}}
\begin{document}
\part{A part}
\end{document}
