this is probably an easy one. I need to place IP addresses into a field. Can I format the field so that the numbers are entered like ###.###.###.### of course not all IP addresses have three numbers in each section so hopefully it will not ask for three numbers if there is only one. But would be nice just to get the . automatically entered. Whats the best way to do this?

Place physical stops on the layout between the octets.

The full address should be recorded in a calculation:

IPAddress = octet1 & "." octet2 & "." & octet3 & "." & octet4

Note that the octets should be TEXT (not numbers) to make sure the string concatenation works properly.
