    Stop special format 0000 from being changed to a Zip code

    I'm trying to set a cell to accept a 4-digit number that may have leading zeros. I've set Numbers - Special Formatting to "0000" but Excel changes it to be a postal zip code from Portugal. Any idea how to keep it from using an existing formatting when I want to use a custom special formatting?

    SSN and phone numbers not formatting

    I have columns of ssn and ph numbers that are not responding to special or custom formatting. Any ideas why? I am using 2007 and the file sent to me is Excel 2003 if that makes a difference. I am very new to Excel and can use all the help I can get. Thanks
