    Validation Expression

    I am using a Regular Expression control to check a phone field. The phone
    format that I want it ########## (no dashes,spaces,periods,etc.)

    Here is my validation Expression: (513|859|812|937) \d{3}\d{4}

    I thought I was doing it correctly but this expression does not allow the
    four area codes that I want (513,859,812, and 937) Can someone tell me what
    the correct expression would be to force the above 4 area codes into the
    following format ##########

    Did you mean that space to be in there?
    It matters.
    Also, this can be simplified.

    This worked for me.
    ValidationExpression="(513|859|812|937)\d{7}"

    If this post contains any code, I may or may not have tested it. It's probably just example code, so no getting knickers in a bunch over a typo, OK? If it doesn't have basic error checking in it, such as object detection or checking if objects are null before using them, put that in there. I'm giving examples, not typing up your whole app for you. You run code at your own risk.

    Thanks Niki.

    I had already simplified the end, but I missed the space. It looks like that is what may have happened.
