Default custom number formating in a merge table?

I am trying to merge fields into a table from an excel file and I would like
to formating to appear the same as the excel formating. Some of the
formatting in excel is custom ie. if the phone number is 1234567891 I want it
to show as (123) 456-7891. How do I do this?
