Applying a string format
A column that displays string data displays the data as it is stored in the data source. You can format string data to modify text that contains inconsistent capitalization or to include characters, such as a space or a punctuation mark, at a specific place in the string. For example, you can display telephone numbers in one of the following formats:
(415) 555-2121
415.555.2121
415-555-2121
