I have a database (MS Access 2003) where the user imported from MS Excel 2003 and then updated an existent table in the database. The table has a field with the input mask for a phone number   !\(999") "000\-0000;0;_

The problem I've noticed is that some records are now showing the phone number not in the correct format. They show as parentices without dashes.

How do I update the field to show all records in the correct format? (with parentices and dashes).
