Error: index was outside the bounds of the array

I'm trying to run a phone fix masks on my database of about 22,000 phone numbers and it runs up until about 530 and then I get a message saying "index was outside the bounds of the array."  What does that mean and how do I fix it?


I've been getting a message when entering in some phone numbers that says "contact no longer exists" so I was told to fix all of the weird characters in each phone field, but can't get any farther than that.  I've run check and repair a few times, but nothing seems to be working.  Please help!  We've recently upgraded from 2008 Premium to 2010 Premium.

Hello Rainmaker Academy,

Welcome to the Act! Online Community!


It appears there is a phone number(s) that does not match the format of the field.  Here is an article with instructions for performing a mass update to your phone numbers to set them all to the same format.  I highly recommend that you create a backup of your database before performing these steps - always backup before making mass updates.
