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.

Outputting Phone Numbers To Word With Formatting - Version: 2003 (11.0)

I have a phone number field in my recordset that I want to output to a Word document. When I view the data in the table, the formatting (e.g., (999) 999-9999) is present, but when I write the field to my word document it just prints the 10 digits in a row without the formatting. Is there an easy way to include the formatting when I output it to the document, or do I need to output it then use Word commands to add the formatting?

Display US Phone Numbers In Data Access Pages - Version: 2003 (11.0)

Hello All,

I've been trying to format some phone numbers (US) on data access pages without any luck at all. For whatever reason, I get the 10 digits of the phone number, but no formatting. I've tried setting the "Format" property to reflect the same format expression as an input mask, but nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Seems like it should be such a simple thing to do...

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?

Can I Format A Text Box As "phone Number" With Hyphens? - Version: 2003 (11.0)

Is it possible to format a text box as a "phone number"? Either with or without the hyphens?

My database form has a phone number text box that I originally typed phone numbers with the hyphens, then later I created an input mask that included the hyphens as I typed. That mask is: "999-999-9999"

However, by using the input mask, the phone number data is now "stored" as numbers only, without the hyphens - but "displayed" with the hyphens. So now when I open the database table, older data is displayed with and later data without the hyphens.

I have two goals:

1. Standardize the data storage in the Access text box, either with-or-without the hyphens. I have tried "find and replace" unsuccessfully... "##########" in the "find" box finds all numbers without hypens, but I need help on syntax for the "replace" box - to just insert the hyphens into the existing number strings. (###-###-#### did not work in the replace box- it simply replaced the existing number with the literal "###-###-####" string).

2. Have Access (or Excel) compare all the phone numbers in the database table text box to a list of numbers in either a Word document or an Excel datasheet, and mark any resulting duplicates with a distinguishing "conditional format", such as text color or strikethrough, etc.

Thank you in advance for any help!!

Format Numbers On DAP - Version: 2000 (9.0)

I'm mint new to using DAPs, and I've tried searching around for the answer - I'm sure there's something painfully obvious that I can't find, but the question:

With the numbers from the query populating the fields in my DAP, how can I format them so they display like 'well-behaved' values on-screen (i.e. - change 1.123456789 to 1.12 - Fixed to 2 decimals)?

Possible values for the 'DataFormatAs' property are a mystery to me, if that is what I should be using.

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

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"?

Phone Dialer - Version: 2003 (11.0)

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but here goes..

I am using Access 2003 and trying to use the Phone Dialer function - hoping to automatically dial numbers held in database fields rather than having to reenter them all into some sort of separate address book.

My version of Access offers links to modems but I am using a very recently installed BT Business Hub with a VOIP phone. Does anyone know of any 'add in' that I can use or have any other ideas?

Many thanks

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.

Input Mask For Phone Num And Ext. - Version: 2003 (11.0)

Yes, I know I am sort of restating a post from earlier . . . Previous Phone Post
After doing 2 hours worth of searches and rethinking my post I realized I really only have one issue and that is with business extentions. When I create my phone number fields I put in an input mask to make it easier for the user to add the number. But what if the number is an extention (ext. 6256). So my question, narrowed down, is within my phone number table do I have two fields: Number and Ext. or do I have a separate table for the extention separate from the phone number.

I appologize if I am beating a dead horse, but this is not the first time I have come across this issue. So I want to make sure I set it up correctly this time.

Many thanks in advance.

Phone Number Formatting - Version: 2002 (10.0) XP

I have a database which gets it's data via an export from a table that obtains it's data from a web-based form.

My problem is the data-entry field on the web-based form doesn't restrict how you key phone numbers: you could use 1-901-123-4567 or 19011234567 or +1 (901) 123-4567..etc.

When I export this data via Excel into my database I end up with a jumbled up mess. Is there any way to 'clean up' this field; that is remove all spaces and non-numerical data? What I want is the basic 10-digit phone number without the "+1" or "1" or any thing else preceeding it.

Once I have it in basic 10-digit format it wll be a simple task to make it display in a uniform manner.
