If mask, it could be
(999) 000-0000

In VS.NET properties window.

For Example, format code N0 is numbers without a decimal point.  I have raised the points level.

My guess - you can not do it without mask. Sorry.

Try this for U.S. phone numbers:

  Dim n As Integer = 1234567890
  Dim s As String = n.ToString("(000) 000-0000")

I am using the MS Reporting Reporting Services Module in VS.NET.  

The data type is Teradata.  So using VB.NET code won't work like this without a whole lot of work.  The options that I have (that I know of area):

Change the format box from the properties window.
Change the query in Teradata
Use Transact SQL code- directly in VS.NET Reporting Services 2003


Please advise.

You may try creating a seperate class to handle the format.

ie:

 Public Sub FormatPhone(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As ConvertEventArgs)
        Dim ph As String
        Try
            ph = e.Value
         e.Value = "(" + ph.Substring(0, 3) + ") " + ph.Substring(3, 3) + "-" + ph.Substring(6, 4)
        Catch
            e.Value = "Not Entered"
        End Try
    End Sub
