String Validation Code

I'm too lazy to figure out the syntax in notes to do this
I need to validate a field in a form before the its saved.

Heres the Validation Criteria

XXXXX-000-XX-X-XX

X=Alpha Numeric
0=Number

The user has to enter the dashes as well....

Heres the code I have....

Sub Click(Source As Button)
      Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkspace
      Dim uidoc As NotesUIDocument
      Set uidoc = workspace.CurrentDocument
      If uidoc.FieldGetText("fldSKU")="" Then
            Messagebox "Please Enter a SKU Number"
      Elseif
=================CODE GOES HERE=============================
      Else
            uidoc.Save
            uidoc.close
      End If
End Sub

and you think 25 points is enough to get me out of laizyness?

use InputValidation event for the field and formula language

FIELD fldSKU:=fldSKU;
@If(@Matches(
@UpperCase(fldSKU);
"{A-Z}{A-Z}{A-Z}{A-Z}{A-Z}-{0-9}{0-9}{0-9}{0-9}-{A-Z}{A-Z}-{A-Z}-{A-Z}{A-Z}");
@Success;@Failure("Please input fldSKU in the form of XXXXX-000-XX-X-XX"))
