Can't get input mask value to display on dataview page

    I was attempting to set up phone numbers in a Contacts Table using the input
    mask lookup wizard. Everything seemed to go find; it recommended the
    following values for the input mask: !(999) 000-0000 and I chose # as a
    placeholder and went on to Finish. The input mask was then displayed as
    follows: !(999) 000-0000;0;#

    I then went to dataview, and under the Work Phone label it will NOT show the
    input mask; it is as if nothing happened. I am using Office XP, a 2002
    version of Access.

    I would appreciate any help you might give me.

    1. Is the table linked?
    2. Did you get a warning message that changes could not be saved? (It will
    still open and let you think you're making changes, but not save.)
    3. Did you apply the Input Mask to the [Work Phone] field? (It's easy to
    miss.)

    Steve,

    None of what you described is the case. The crazy thing about it, doing the
    identical input masking for zip code and SSN worked just fine! I am VERY
    frustrated about this; it's with ALL the input masking for all phone numbers!

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
