Hi,

all you need is two small scripts in the printed fields prePrint and postPrint events:

prePrint event

if (!this.isNull) {

var cStr = this.rawValue,

cMaskString, cKeepStr, cAsterisk,

iLength = cStr.length;

// Save rawValue as a global variable (don't use var!)

cGlobalStringVar = cStr;

// Replace except the last for characters with asterisk.

this.rawValue = Array(iLength-3).join("*").concat(cStr.slice(iLength-4, iLength));

}

postPrint event

// Restore to original raw value from global variable

this.rawValue = cGlobalStringVar;

Hope this helps.

I need to mask out an Account Number field when printing but can't seem to make ithings work.

Where does your suggestion go under form calc?  Is radzmar's suggestion needed with yours??
