    I have a phone number field with the input mask:

    !\(999") "000\-0000;;_

    How can I have a default area code of 615 when you click on the field to
    start entering the number?

    Whenever I set up a default value, it has the value there before I click on
    the field... I want it to stay blank unless someone begins to enter data.

    Set this to run when your phone number field has the focus - change the
    FieldName and FormName -


    Private Sub FieldName_GotFocus()
    On Error GoTo FieldName_GotFocus_Err
    Forms!FormName!FieldName = 615
    FieldName_GotFocus_Exit:
    Exit Sub
    End Sub

    OK Wayne, I finally got the code to work... Thanks.

    BUT, it places the 615 at the end of the number, like so:

    (___) ___-_615

    Is there a way to set it up so that when the user clicks on the field they get

    (615) ___-____

    and the curser is on the first blank so that they can start typing in the
    rest of the number? Then if they need to change the area code, they have to
    physically highlight it...
