Default input mask problem

I have an input mask which is: x of y. My input mask looks like this: 0"
of "0. The field is named Number of Tools: The data appears as 1 OF 1, 1
OF 2, 2 OF 2 and so on.

Most of my entries appear correctly. I have a group that is showing up as
11, 12, 22. When I click in the field they switch to 1 OF 1. I have tried
to re-enter items hoping to fix this problem but it doesn't work.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!

My suggestion would be to use two fields, one for each number. Whenever you
want to see the " OF ", you can create this in a query or control source.
