This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

Unable to use the above calc code since it is for FM Advanced only. I am using "regular" FM 9.3. (Tried it... it won't work)

Do you have a calc code for auto formating SS numbers that will work with my version of FMP ???

Much appreciate any help you may offer.

Thanks,

You won't be able to make custom functions without FM Pro Advanced, but you can make a calculated field with the some formula:

Let([
NumOnly= Filter(number; "0123456789");

SSNumb = Left(NumOnly;3) &"-"
& Middle(NumOnly;4;2) &"-"
& Middle(NumOnly;6;4)
]
