I need help to create code to format numbers in Table1 to correct mobile number format i.e. 04xxxxxxxx I thought of doing this in a stored procedure but maybe its best to create a function however I hardly create functions so needing help.

Table name = Table1
Field name = MbPhon
datatype is char(20)

need code either an SP or function to format mobile numbers to correct format below
basically need to format so there is:
- no spaces between numbers
- no mobile numbers displayed to output if contain special chars
- must start with 04 and be a maximum of 10 digits (04xxxxxxxx)

Table looks like this:
MbPhon

0401444333
0401 000111
0416555333
etc

* Note 0401000111 is just an example mob# used
MbPhon values:
0401000111son should be 0401000111
0401 000 111 should be 0401000111
0401 000111 should be 0401000111
0401000111 (d) should be 0401000111
0401000111 dean should be 0401000111
0401000111 / 0402 should be 0401000111
04010001114 should be disregarded from outputting as there is an extra number on the end
pager 311100 should be disregarded from outputting as doesnt start with 04
02111000 should be disregarded from outputting as doesnt start with 04
