Title

displaying phone numbers; restricting record access

Post

I am test-driving FMP10, after having done same with Bento2. I have imported a large volume of contact info from a legacy OS9 contact manager into the FMP10 Contact-management starter application. I used TAB files. All has gone well.

 

However I have yet to find instructions in the onscreen HELP for formatting fields that hold phone numbers. I imported the phone data as 10-digit numbers, not text. The field data type is number. Is there a way to have these formatted for display as phone numbers?

 

I have certain sensitive records that should require high-level privileges to access.  According to the HELP screen concerning security and privilege sets, I can restrict access to particular fields, layouts, and records.  However I have yet to find any instructions on how to restrict access to specific records.  Can anyone help me with this?
