Description:

If not 10 digits, leave as is, it will fail validation.

Otherwise it removes formatting, leading and trailing spaces and returns,

It puts the number in a 2,4,4 format for landline numbers or 4,3,3 format for mobile numbers.

Starting with 04 or 05 = mobile, rest are landline.

how can i code the following in Custom Function if you can write it for me

theta = lon2 - lon1
dist = acos(sin(lat1) × sin(lat2) + cos(lat1) × cos(lat2) × cos(theta))
if (dist < 0) dist = dist + pi
dist = dist × 6371.2
