Hey Guys!

Having a slight problem with Phone Number Normalization with LCS 2005.  The problem being is I haven't a clue about the string setup of the numbers!

I'm trying to get 2 strings setup for phone numbers in the UK.  The format I need is:

xxxxx xxxxxx

and

xxxx xxx xxxx

I've tried working out what (/d/d/d*$1) means but I'm afraid I can't speak Microsoft Martian!

Any help would be appreciated!

Cheers,

Dave

(/d/d/d*$1) is what's as a "regular expression" ha go figure.
Also it's widely used not just microsoft.

$  is the "end of line" symbol. () is the grouping * is repitition

so I think /d/d/d*$1 means true when 3 digits over and over ending with 1

Worked a treat, simple but effective! ;)
