I have a field NUMBERS. that contains phone numbers.  I need a formula that will search for the 4th number in that field, and if that number is either a "0" or a "1", I need it omitted.  Otherwise I want the number shown.

EX:

2120111234
2121111234
2125551234

I do not want my report to display the first 2 numbers.

I think this is what you need in the suppress formula of the fields.

If mid(totext({NUMBERS}),4,1) = "0" or mid(totext({NUMBERS}),4,1) = "1" then true else false.

I have not tested this formula.  Basically we are converting the number to a text (I am assuming we are working with a numeric field) and checking the fourth character to see if it is a zero or a one.  If so, then return a true condition else a false condition.  A true condition in the suppress formula for a field will suppress the field.
