My given assignement question is

You Add masked edit controls to the Customer Data page
Now you will add ActiveX controls to the Customer Data page.
Open the Customer Data page with Notepad.
Add a row to the table for Phone and Fax information.
Retrieve the class ID for the Microsoft Masked Edit control.
This control is installed with Visual Basic. If it isn't installed on your computer, the class ID is: C932BA85-4374-101B-A56C-00AA003668DC.
Add two <OBJECT> tags to the Customer Data page for the Phone and Fax masked edit controls. For each <OBJECT> tag:
Set the CLASSID parameter to the class ID of the masked edit control.
Set the ID parameter to Phone or Fax, respectively.
Set the width to 120 and the height to 25.
For each <OBJECT> tag, set the CODEBASE parameter:
Create a Controls directory in the root of the Main Street Market Web site, and copy the masked edit control, MSMask32.ocx, from the HTML_Course\Online_HTML_Tutorial\Labs\Lab2.3 directory to the Controls directory.
Set the CODEBASE parameter of the <OBJECT> tag to point to this file.
If you are unsure of the syntax for the <OBJECT> tag, look at this solution code:
Initialize the following properties with PARAM tags.
(###) ###-####

Note In Lab 4, you will change the Mask, based on which country is selected.
The two masked edit controls should look like the following:
Phone ( ) -
Save your changes to the Customer Data page.
