Ok. I am needing the cell to contain a maximum of 10 numbers. Sometimes I am provided 4 or 5 numbers. For example "1492" or "93823". What I am needing help with a formula that will add 5 or 6 "0" zeroes before those number sets. Any ideas. I have been playing around and still can't figure it out. Thanks.

Do you mean something like custom format "0000000000"?

Or if it is in the formula something like...
Code:
=TEXT(A1,"0000000000")

I hope this helps!

I mean that they give me different numbers of different lengths. Such as "33929" or "392212" I need the formula to automatically make it "0000033929" or "0000392212". Where it is automatically putting 0 before the number but not going over 10 digits.
