I think all you need is tel:+ infront of the number
tel:+1-212-555-1234

I have been using this formula to activate skype but I was wondering if there was a way to have it just call from a mobile device when I add the button to a report notification that is emailed out.

"skype:" & Mid([Phone 1],2,3) & Mid([Phone 1],7,3) & Mid([Phone 1],11,4)
