"How to master user's data entries in a field" tutorial might help you:
This stack shows you how to allow the user to type the data you  
expect according to a format in an entry box field.
Five examples are provided from a simple ZIP code to custom  
sophisticated formats.

You will access this tutorial through "Tutorials Picker" a free  
plugin that interfaces with the So Smart Software website in order to  
display all available tutorials stacks directly from the web.
You will find it by going to
Revolution/Plugins or Tutorials section.
