I have 2 nummeric fields, one is Contract Number the other is Plan Number. How can I combine these 2 existing fields into 1 new field, example Contract Number is 123456 , Plan Number is 001. I need a 3rd field to combine the first two into a Contract/Plan number field of 123456001

Try this

ToText([Contract Number] & [Pan Number]

If your Plan number reads like in your post, then it is not a numeric field. It is a text fmessage field.

Small syntax correction:

ToText([Contract Number]) & [Plan Number]

Also, if you want to make sure they both can accept the text number:
ToText([Contract Number]) & ToText([Plan Number])

If you want to add a hyphen in between, or any character
ToText([Contract Number]) &" - "& ToText([Plan Number])

I know how that goes.  My phone loves to mess up my brackets.  Feel free to correct me anytime.  It for the users anyway.  You and I both know this stuff like the back of our hand.  And Dan D is on another level.
