[quote=Varda;496764]I've read this entire thread several times, tried all the suggestions, but am having the same exact issue the person wrote below. The weird thing is that this happens to SOME of the records, and not all of them.

I've checked my database and the phone numbers are all stored in the same manner. Yet the printed mail merging in Word shows this for some of the phone numbers:
(- ) -1635

Actually, I would prefer having it listed as 207-555-2462 in my listings, if
possible.
Thanks for information.
