If I have a number eg 125431254. I want to add a '0' at the front of this making it 0125431254. I want to do this to over 1000 numbers. Exactly the same thing, adding a '0' at the beginning of each number. Is there a function or formulae to help me do this quickly?

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

You can format the adjacent cell as text and use

presuming number is in col A:

="0" & A1

Then drag down to get the new string for each number.

Alternatively, you could not format the cell as text, and use

="'0" & A1


Whereabouts in London are you?
