View Full Version : Phone and Fax numbers imported incorrectly

01-22-2011, 02:13 PM
Hi, I have an issue with importing phone and fax numbers. When I view them in the balloon, they come out as 2,184,351,133 instead of 2184351133. Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Try Prefixing it with a character, maybe instead of "2184351133" you could input
it as "# 2184 35 1133" or something.

Yes force it to be parsed as text. The '#' should do the trick. Or a "Tel." would work as a prefix.

At the moment your source (Excel?) and hence MapPoint thinks it is just a number.
