I have a field in a table that is an 11 character number.
The trouble is I am dropping leading zero's. Is there a way to handle this?
Ex: 0005679790 shows as 5679790 which is not acceptable.

If you have the field formatted as Text instead of a Numeric option, the leading zeroes will not be dropped.
