Absolutely brilliant but they have now thrown a curved ball and state that some of the phone numbers are from other countries and so the zero needs also to stay in the brackets


Original

+37 (0) 123 5555555

Reformatted

+37 (0123) 5555555

I think a bit of tweeking needs to be done.

Heh... so tweek it! I changed 1 character to make it meet the new requirements which is also the beauty of the Divide'n'Conquer method. Wink


--===== Create and populate a test table. This is NOT part of the solution
DECLARE @PhoneNumbers TABLE (Original VARCHAR(30))
INSERT INTO @PhoneNumbers (Original)
SELECT '+44 (0) 1908 123 456' UNION ALL
SELECT '+44 (0) 121 430 4992'

SELECT Original,
REPLACE(STUFF(PartialFormat,CHARINDEX(' ',PartialFormat),0,')'),'(',' (') AS Reformatted
FROM (--==== Partially reformat the phone number by replacing the (0) and surrounding spaces
-- with just a left parentheses...
SELECT Original, REPLACE(Original, ' (0) ','(0') AS PartialFormat FROM @PhoneNumbers
) d

I have tweeked the code and have put it inside a cursor which should read the first 3 chars and then change to which ever it should be.

Once I have tested etc I will post for other people to use.

Beer in post!

Heh... now why would you mess up some nice set based code with a cursor? Wink

Yep... right up until you dial a 1 or 3 digit country code instead of +44.
Country codes can be from 1 to 3 digits.
City codes can be from 0 to 4 digits.
