Format Phone Fields

These control files will format or mask the Home, POE, Cell, and Other phone fields on the Debtor form into the xxx-xxx-xxxx format.

It is not setup to format the phone numbers on the Phone tab, but can be adapted to do so.

For the following formats, you can edit the control files or contact us for customization:

  • xxx xxx xxxx
  • (xxx) xxx-xxxx

A Readme is included with instructions for attaching the control file to the phone fields.


  • At present, when you enter the number as xxxxxxxxxx, Collect! will reformat to xxx-xxx-xxxx, but Collect! will not scan your database to see if the phone number already exists in your system for account matching.
  • This only works for new numbers that are manually entered. The format will not apply to existing numbers in your system or phone numbers that are imported. Your import maps can be customized to format the phone numbers.
