Assuming your data is always in a 4-3-3 digit format, 12 characters total, you will need to make minor changes to Don's suggestion, in red, below.


return Left(Field("YOURFIELD"),4)+" "+Left(Right(Field("YOURFIELD"),[color="red"]7[/color]),3)+" "+Right(Field("YOURFIELD"),3)[color="Red"];[/color]



Taking this approach and depending on your data, you might want to strip out the spaces first. You could try:


var str = Field("YourField");//Replace with your field name
var newStr = str.replace(/\s+/g, '');

return Left(newStr,4) + " " + Left(Right(newStr,6),3) + " " + Right(newStr,3);


Or maybe, strip out spaces and hyphens first. Additions are in red:


var str = Field("YourField");//Replace with your field name
var newStr = str.replace(/\s+[color="red"]|-[/color]/g, '');

return Left(newStr,4) + " " + Left(Right(newStr,6),3) + " " + Right(newStr,3)


et cetera...


There are probably more efficient ways of accomplishing this.
