Formatting phone field based on value in another field


Ken Warthen

I'm trying to format a field that contains a phone number on a split form.
If the value in the Country/Region field is equal to the value "USA" I want
the phone field to format as (@@@) @@@-@@@@. If the value is equal to any
other country abbreviation I want to display whatever the value is without
formatting. I'm using the following in the Control Source for the phone
number field, but it's generating #Name? values.

=IIf([Country/Region]="USA",Format([Business Phone],"(@@@)
@@@-@@@@"),[Business Phone])

Any idea what I'm doing wrong here?

The error seems to indicate that either [Country/Region] or [Business
Phone] is not the name of a field in the underlying data set.
Otherwise your expression looks good.
