format data asssist result as phone number

I apologize if this isn't the appropriate place to ask this question, but I've tried answers from other forums and they don't seem to work with the Data Assist repeating table i have.

I need to format a phone and fax number (all domestic and 10 digit) to display as ###-###-####. My client updates this database often and does not want to change from a simple "Phone" field, to "Area" - "Pre" - "Last".

Is there someway for me to format the display of the phone and fax to add the "-"?

Here is the code from my repeating table

<?php echo phn_num($row_WADAroster['phone']); ?>
<?php echo phn_num($row_WADAroster['fax']); ?>

Again, sorry if this is a stupid question, I'm not very good with php, and the functions I found on php forums, I couldn't get to work with DA.

Thanks

PHP does not have a way to format phone numbers, you would need to hand code a function to do that.

here is a quick example I found through google:

php:
<?php

function phoneFormat($phoneNumber) {
    
$strPhone ereg_replace("[^0-9]",''$phoneNumber);
    if (
strlen($strPhone) != 10) {
        return 
$strPhone;
    }
    
    
$strArea substr($strPhone03);
    
$strPrefix substr($strPhone33);
    
$strNumber substr($strPhone64);
    
    
$strPhone "".$strArea."-".$strPrefix."-".$strNumber;
    
    return (
$strPhone);
}
?>




to use this function, change your code:

php:
<?php echo phn_num($row_WADAroster['phone']); ?>

<?php 
echo phn_num($row_WADAroster['fax']); ?>



to:

php:
<?php echo(phoneFormat($row_WADAroster['phone'])); ?>

<?php 
echo(phoneFormat($row_WADAroster['fax'])); ?>
