Split 10 digit phone numbers into 2 fields
Posted on 2002-04-06
I need help with a query to run in Access. I have a field called "phone" in a table called "NewMasterName". This contains phone numbers in two different formats some with area code and some without. I need to split these.
one is 1112223333
the other is 2223333
I need to break this down in this way, if the field contains only the 7 digit phone number leave it alone, BUT if it contains a 10 digit phone number I need to pull the first three digits and move them into a field called "AreaCode" in the same table. Can somebody give me a simple query to do this?
