I am trying to format a numeric value retrieved from an data table, so that it will display as a phone number in a rdlc. I am using the microsoft report viewer and creating the rdlc using the drag method from the available fields in the data table.

I use something similar to this from
http://www.themssforum.com/SVCS/format-phone/
= Format(Convert.ToDouble("90155585850000"), "(###) ###-#### 'Ext.' ####") 
 
'or use a regular expression, sth like 
 
=System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(Fields!phone.Value, 
"(\d{3})(\d{3})(\d{4})", "($1) $2-$3")
