 Formatting text in Crystal Reports

I have a database with some phone number fields (of type STRING). Now of
course the bound control that recieves this phone number text from the
user had a FORMAT property of (###) ###-###, so it recieves and displays
number like that: (123) 456-7890

However, Crystal Reports outputs the field data as a plain string like so:
1234567890

Is there any way to make it print the data out in a formatted manner,
short of deleting and reconstructing the table to make the phone number
field hold the brackets and dash?

Thanks.
