You should be able to use SUBSTR() function - something like:

SUBSTR(1185264, 1,3)+'-'+SUBSTR(1185264,4,4)

Note - if there can be fewer or a greater number of characters than four after the third character, just elminate the last parameter of the substr function which defaults to the end of the string -
SUBSTR(yourfield, 1,3) + '-' + SUBSTR(yourfield,4)
No points, please.
