My recommendation is to create seperate text boxes for each and then create the auto tab script

Here is a sample of the two boxes with auto tab:

<script>
//auto tab script
var isNN = (navigator.appName.indexOf("Netscape")!=-1);
if(isNN)
  document.captureEvents(Event.KEYPRESS);
      function autoTab(input,len, e) {
      var keyCode = (isNN) ? e.which : e.keyCode;
      var filter = (isNN) ? [0,8,9] : [0,8,9,16,17,18,37,38,39,40,46];
      if(input.value.length >= len && !containsElement(filter,keyCode)) {
      input.value = input.value.slice(0, len);
      input.form[(getIndex(input)+1) % input.form.length].focus();
      }
      function containsElement(arr, ele) {
      var found = false, index = 0;
            while(!found && index < arr.length)
      if(arr[index] == ele)
            found = true;
      else
            index++;
      return found;
      }
      function getIndex(input) {
      var index = -1, i = 0, found = false;
            while (i < input.form.length && index == -1)
      if (input.form[i] == input)index = i;
      else i++;
      return index;
      }
return true;
}
</script>
<form method="POST" action="--WEBBOT-SELF--">
  <p>
  <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="Phone1" SIZE="3" MAXLENGTH="3" VALUE=""  onKeyUp="return autoTab(this, 3, event);" onBlur="this.value=checkNumber(this.value);">-<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="Phone2" SIZE="4" MAXLENGTH="4" VALUE=""  onKeyUp="return autoTab(this, 4, event);" onBlur="this.value=checkNumber(this.value);">
  (format = 123-1234)<p>
  &nbsp;<input type="submit" value="Submit" name="B1"><input type="reset" value="Reset" name="B2"></form>

When you write to the database (if you are doing this), the sql will look something like

INSERT INTO Table (PnoneNum) VALUES ('::Phone1::-::Phone2::')


If you want the area code then add a line above phone1 like

<INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="AreaCode" SIZE="3" MAXLENGTH="3" VALUE=""  onKeyUp="return autoTab(this, 3, event);" onBlur="this.value=checkNumber(this.value);">

and make your sql read .... VALUES ('::AreaCode::-::Phone1::-::Phone2::')

Hope this helps
