Hi Jason,
Thanks again. This sorted some of the problem but not all.
If you enter 11111 111 111 it is fine. But if you enter 11111 111111 or 11111111111 it is not. User can use either method to enter the numbers. It will all mean same. In fact most people will use the last format 11111111111. So what we need to do is somehow disable format validiation but keep the field entry validiation (numeric).
I am sorry I am taking your time but this is the first time I have come accross this kinf of validiation. Although I am in UK, I have filled in several forms belonging to USA websites and did not experience this before. It could be an important issue for people who are using form builder for their websites in the USA and hoping that someone in Europe or other counties can use the form in ease. I think the visitor will be very frustrated and give up filling the form with their details if they cannot enter the phone number or cannot get vaildiation. My telephone number will always fail validiation. If I was filling in a form which I beleive from outside UK 0044 1392 444 XXX. This would have never pass the validiation.

Do you think this should be sorted out within the program itself / or a MOD must be created to implement after? But in my opinion visitors from anywhere on the world should be able to enter their telephone number without difficulty as most forms require a validiation for this. WebAssist must agree that WWW is WORLD WIDE WEB and not just for USA.
