Access 2007, input mask

Is it possible to use an input mask in an "Iif" function in a query to return the following:

A phone number with an extension or one w/o.

123-456-7891, Ext 1234

If applying the input mask using the properties window, I get the following:

(222-333-4444) = (   )  22-2333, Ext. 4444
(222-333-4444, Ext. 555) = (222) 333-4444, Ext. 555

* The Phone and Extension fields are in separate and joined with the following:
Fee Billing Phone: ([ClientPhone] & IIf([ClientExtension] Is Not Null,", " & [ClientExtension]))
