In my base I have a list of my customers by phone number. We are trying to link if they attended a zoom session. I have a script that can link if it find name or phone number matches. Sometimes though customers dial in by phone. Registration reports from zoom provide numbers in a string of digits with a country code at the front.

Ex. (123) 456 - 7890 would show up as 11234567890

For my script to work I need to have the two columns that have the same values. Is there a way to format using formulas either column to make them match. Any ideas?

This might work…


Unfortunately, VALUE does not recognize phone number fields!

It worked for me. Try typing the formula in the field instead of copy/paste. I worry that those quotes in my response may be curly. Those are not good.

I found the issue!!

You are right, VALUE() does work. I was trying to use it formula field that was pulling the info from a lookup. The value operation only works if you have it look to the original phone number field.
