How do I move this value in phone number format xxx-xxx-xxxx

ActiveCell.Offset(0, 5).Value = txtPhone.Value
 

Excel Facts

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.

Welcome to the board!
You could do it like this:

Code:
    If txtPhone.Value < 9999999 Then
        ActiveCell.Offset(0, 5).Value = Format(txtPhone.Value, "###-####")
    Else
        ActiveCell.Offset(0, 5).Value = Format(txtPhone.Value, "(###) ###-####")
    End if

Note that this method will convert a number into a string.

If you wish to keep the value as a number and simply FORMAT it as a Phone Number you could use:
Code:
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 5).Value = txtPhone.Value
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 5).NumberFormat = "[<=9999999]###-####;(###) ###-####"

Note that the second option will change cell formatting in the active sheet.

Use whichever method is preferable to you.
