Hello Experts,
I am currently using the following formula in a report to format social security numbers:
{idntdfndt.ssn} [1 to 3] + "-" + { idntdfndt.ssn } [4 to 5] + "-" + { idntdfndt.ssn} [6 to 9]
Is there a way to modify this formula (or another formula) to display social security numbers as:  XXX - XX  1234 ?
If it matters at all, the report queries an Oracle database.

walk around:  'XXX - XXX - ' + ToText ({RE_INSURANCE_ACCUM.PERS_NUM}) [6 to 9]
since the first six charachter not displayed anyway
