> I have a simple problem. I have a database CUSTOMERS with field name
> nPhone, which is a numeric of field 10. I want the field to display
> in a grid in the usual phone # style, i.e. "(999) 999-9999". I have changed
> the Inputmask property to (999) 999-9999 which gives me the desired effect
> ONLY when the phone # field has focus. When the focus moves off it,
> the field loses its punctuation, i.e. reverts to 9999999999 format.
> I want the field to always format to (999) 999-9999 regardless if it
> has focus or not. I have played with the format property without success.
