Format For Phone Numbers

I set my phone number to be formatted like (920)123-4567

I copied data from an excel spread sheet - now the phone numbers are like 920-123-4567.

Is there a way that I can update the phone numbers to be the correct formatting (920) 123-4567?

Invalid Phone Numbers
I am trying to run some queries on a large customer file that has very poor data - particularly in the contact number fields.

If there are more than six "1"s, "9"s, or "0"s in the number, then we are planning to treat it as an invalid number and replace it with a null.

Any ideas about how to do this?

Validating Phone Numbers
I am trying to work with a large table of customer data.
I know that there is a large number of invalid values.
I would like to run a make table query that would check the phone number against a table of known invalid numbers (e.g. 1234567, 11111111, 99999999, etc).
If the number exists on the invalid table, then I would like to replace it with a null value.

Phone Number Format Problem With Mail Merge
Twilight Zone Phormat Problem

I have a mail merge from Access into Word that works great except for a baffling problem with phone number formatting. Instead of (987) 654-3210, on certain records the merge produces 9876543210. I cannot identify a pattern to explain it, but it is not random. Certain records consistently leave the format behind on the phone number, some on the fax number, and some on both. This problem is affecting about 1/3 of the contact records. I have the Input Mask on Phone and Fax in the table set to !(999") "000-0000;0;_. Is anyone familiar with this problem?

Format Numbers In Query Text Field?
I have a field in a query that contains numbers and text (text field). The numbers displayed come from a percent calculation and display with many decimals ie, .99898745987245. Is there a way to eliminate the decimals with code in the query field? For example .99898745987245 to equal 99%? I can’t format the field as a number or percent because it has both text and numbers. HELP!!

Phone Number Input Help
Greetings... I am setting up a text box to accept a phone number with an input mask of 000-000-0000;0;_ but it isnt doing quite what I want it to do, I would like it to start at the begining when clicked to prevent the error of a user typing in the number a space too far to the right. (right now it places the cursor where ever the user clicks, which becomes a major pain when you want to just be able to click the field anywhere and type from left to right for sake of speed)

thanks for any solutions you might have to offer

Phone Book Problem
Here is my setup:

In Acess 97 I have a single data base with 5 tables, Attorneys, Employers, Health Care Professionals and two others. All tables have exactly the same fields.

I am trying to create a “phone book” made up of all the records in the data base. The form for this phone book has only a few fields such as fname, lname, phone, address. It also has the autonumber field. The record source for the form is a Union Query. When I open the form it works well. I get lawyers, employers, doctors , etc. all in alphabetical order.

Here is my problem:

I have a command button labeled “View Record.” I want to be able to click on this and have it find the record in its original table and open the form for that table so the record can be modified (on exiting the record I have it requery so the phone book is updated).

I can only get this to work with one table at a time, that is, the table that is named in the event procedure code. So if I am in, say, an Attorney record and tblAttoney is named in the event procedure code, all works well. But if I am in, say, an Employer record I get a blank Attorney form opened.

How can I get it to trace the autonumber to the proper table and open the record . I assume that the autonumbers are unique ACROSS all five tables since they are in the same database.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Add Padding To Phone Number
I have a list of about 900 phone numbers, which have been formatted in excel to have a 0 at the beginning of the phone number. However when i export the data to access, so it can be viewed on a webpage this formatting is lost.

How best can i go about adding a zero at the beggining of all of the phone numbers in my list? Can it be done using sql or is there another function in access that can do this.

Phone Number Input Mask
Ok I have an excel spreadsheet with over 6000 phone numbers that I need to import into a table. I have set up my field with an input mask to display a phone number as (xxx) xxx-xxxx. I have also set up my excel spreadsheet to have the numbers set up like 1234567890 to make it easy to throw in and let the input mask take over. My question is: I have some numbers that have an extension and are set up as 1234567890 x 102. I can take out the "x" and have all of the numbers run together, but what is the input mask syntax to have it display as say "(xxx) xxx-xxxx"?

Northwind's Customer Phone List Problem
Have made extensive use of the Customer Phone List Macro and Form from the Northwind Demo Database that comes with MS Access.
Recently, have been getting a failure message:

The object doesn't contain the Automation object 'RecordsetClone'.
You tried to run a Visual Basic procedure to set a property or method for an object. However, the component doesn't make the property or method available for Automation operations.

I have done nothing different, but this is coming up each time I select a different letter in that Customer Phone List form.

Any suggestions as to how I might address this problem? Thanks for your anticipated assistance.

Looking For Free/shareware PDA And Cell Phone Tracking Database

I have a list of 500 PDA users, spread over 7 offices.
I want to keep an eye on what happens with the devices and their SIM-cards. As they are often swapped between offices and SIM-cards get lost.
I am pretty sure that I don't have to re-invent the wheel.
Do you have any idea of a free/shareware tracking tool for PDA's and cell phones ?

Thanks in advance !
