Title

Phone number input mask

Post

Im so new i squeak to file maker pro, that being said i have read from the knowlege base and the forums about input masks for the phone number. none have worked for me. so either as a new user i did something wrong on the set up or something changed from prior versions of the program possibly.

 

I am using FM Pro 11. the phone number is a text field named Phone1 and a second field as Phone2 and im wanting the normal (xxx) xxx-xxxx input mask.

I have removed the prior settings from the options on those fields that i had tried when following the posts i read on them so back to a blank slate to work with.

my file has 500+ customers all using that format alrdy but entered manually.

 

Thanks in advance for your help
