If you need to require users to enter data in a well-defined format, such as a telephone number or a part number, you can accomplish this quickly and with minimal code by using the Masked Text Box control.

A is a string made up of characters from a masking language that specifies which characters can be entered at any given position in the text box. If the user types an incorrect entry, for example, the user types a letter when a digit is required, the control will automatically reject the input.

You may require that certain text fields not be zero-length, that a field be formatted as a telephone number or other type of well-formed data, or that a string not contain any unsafe characters that could be used to compromise the security of a database.
