Hi All,
I am trying to create a list of numbers in one column. My list needs to have two leading zeroes. The problem is that once the list hits 10, it takes away one leading zero. For example, excel does this:
001
004
...
009
010
011
...
099
100
101​
I would like the list to increment automatically even with two leading zeroes, as shown below:
001
004
...
009
0010
0011
...
0099
00100
00101
...
001000

I have trouble using the series > fill automatic fill button, since the leading zeroes force me to use the list as a text format. I would really like the list to fill automatically but I am having trouble.

Thanks for your help!
