How do I change the phone number display format for all contacts at once

Hello,


I am having a similar issue with inconsistencies across my outlook contacts. I switched to a new blackberry that is registered in BES and when I activated the new device all of my contacts phone numbers got switched in both Outlook and on the device from (XXX) XXX-XXXX to XXXXXXXXXX. I found the following script  

 
Sub FixFileAsAddress()
    Dim olkContact As Outlook.ContactItem
    For Each olkContact In Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection
        With olkContact
            'Change the following line as needed
            .FileAs = .FirstName & " " & .LastName
            .Save
        End With
    Next
    Set olkContact = Nothing
End Sub

Open in new window


and would like to know how I could modify it to change all of my contacts back to the original formatting, (XXX) XXX-XXXX in outlook. Thank you in advance
