I allow users to enter phone in format of (111) 999-9999

Have () and dashes.

I want to remove them before saving it. I know I can use "replace". But anyone has a function I can use to replace ALL characters...even $ or & or *?  Just keep numbers..not even keep a space...

you can use regex. you can do something like this:

Dim regex as Regex = New Regex("[^0-9]")
Dime digits as String = regex.Replace(phone, "")
