I'm trying to validate a date.  I've been playing with the below code
but I can't get it to verify a correct phone number.  Can anyone steer
me in the correct direction on how to verify a phone number in a field
for the correct format?  Jeff

--> Function
function CheckPhone pPhoneToCheck
  if pPhoneToCheck is
matchText(pPhoneToCheck,"([0-9][0-9][0-9])-([0-9][0-9][0-9])-([0-9][0-9]
[0-9][0-9])")
    then
    return pPhoneToCheck
  else
    return "Bad Phone"
  end if
end CheckPhone
-->End of Function


--> Code in Filed
on closeField

put CheckPhone(me) into Ewr
   
  if Ewr is "Bad Phone" then
    answer "The Telephone Number you entered must be in the format of
000-000-0000"
    put "" into me
    focus on me
    break
    
  ELSE
     
    Answer "OK Good Number"
     
  END IF 
end closeField
