willlywilburwonka,

Thats a solution we thought about but couldnt proceed with it because we have branch offices with NEC Aspire pbx systems and different flavors of Asterisks. Therefore the dialplans or outbound routing has to be changed on all. Although this solution doesnt work for our scenario, yours is a good solution..
Kav,

I guess I don't fully understand the requirement then. Do you have overlapping patterns on different sites?

Commented:
no there is no overlapping patterns but for example , if my site is using 29xx to 21xx currently other site does 39xx to 31xx and so on. Prefixing a 2 on outbound routes will not conflict between any sites bcoz 29xx  will be 229xx , 39xx with be 339xx but the problem i understand is its such a headache to redo all sites with hundreds of extensions. Also i wonder the NEC Aspire PBX system would allow 5 digit dialing. This exists in couple of our sites.
Sorry i didnt realize these issues when posting this question.
