I have the following phone number +33661291700, do you know a formula that converts it to a US phone number? (e.g: (415) 555-2671)

Thank you

I believe it’s because a lookup field is a list (array), should be able to convert this to a string if there is only one number in it.

Change each studentPhoneNumberAsE164 to CONCATENATE(studentPhoneNumberAsE164)

Formula is here

CONCATENATE( "(", MID(RIGHT(REGEX_REPLACE({Phone Number}, "[+ -.]", ""),10), 1,3), ") ", MID(RIGHT(REGEX_REPLACE({Phone Number}, "[+ -.]", ""),10), 4,3), "-", MID(RIGHT(REGEX_REPLACE({Phone Number}, "[+ -.]", ""),10), 7,4) )

This formula isn’t compatible with a E164 format as input.

What field types are you using?

The direct copy and paste worked for me.

Using

CONCATENATE( "(", MID(RIGHT(REGEX_REPLACE(studentPhoneNumberAsE164, "[+ -.]", ""),10), 1,3), ") ", MID(RIGHT(REGEX_REPLACE({studentPhoneNumberAsE164}, "[+ -.]", ""),10), 4,3), "-", MID(RIGHT(REGEX_REPLACE({studentPhoneNumberAsE164}, "[+ -.]", ""),10), 7,4) )

Getting #ERROR! for all, even when valid.

My studentPhoneNumberAsE164 field is a lookup field from a formula (text) field, not a native Phone number field, may that be why it fails? :thinking:

You’re right. It worked with ARRAYJOIN.

CONCATENATE( "(", MID(RIGHT(REGEX_REPLACE(ARRAYJOIN(studentPhoneNumberAsE164), "[+ -.]", ""),10), 1,3), ") ", MID(RIGHT(REGEX_REPLACE(ARRAYJOIN(studentPhoneNumberAsE164), "[+ -.]", ""),10), 4,3), "-", MID(RIGHT(REGEX_REPLACE(ARRAYJOIN(studentPhoneNumberAsE164), "[+ -.]", ""),10), 7,4) )
