Format Phone from External Data File


Recommended Posts

How do I apply a phone format (ie. 123.456.7890) to a phone number being pulled from an external data file?


I have rules for each, but can't figure out how to combine them.


Thank you.


Here is the rule that pulls the phone number from the external data file:


returnStr = '';

if(FusionPro.Composition.isPreview == true || FusionPro.inValidation == true)

numRecsExtDF = externalDF.recordCount;

for (recordWalker=1; recordWalker <= numRecsExtDF; recordWalker++)
   if (externalDF.GetFieldValue(recordWalker, 'Location') == Field("Location"))
       returnStr += externalDF.GetFieldValue(recordWalker, 'Phone');

return returnStr;

Answering my own question...I totally overthought this.


The answer is to have the phone set with the proper formatting in the external data file. Since I have control over the data file, I can make sure it's consistent every time.
