Is it possible to change the phone number format when entering customer info in Quickbooks Desktop 2020 Pro?
Hello there, @Steppenout.
There isn't a format to follow when entering a phone number in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT). This means we can enter the digits in any format.
I'd also recommend visiting our QuickBooks Blog from time to time to stay current with the latest feature available in QBDT.
In case you need tips and related articles in the future, you can always check our self-help articles in QBDT: Help articles for QuickBooks Desktop.
Don't hesitate to drop a comment below if you have other questions. I'm always happy to help. Take care!
The format? The field should take whatever you enter into it. Are you seeing something different?
The program does accept whatever format I enter. I was looking for a way to get the program to automatically format the number typed into the field with a format of my choosing.
Currently I enter (123) 555-6666 and the program accepts that as well as any other format that I enter
I would like to enter 1235556666 and the program would automatically enter the parentheses and dash for me. This is available in many other programs such as Microsoft Excel
