    Try formatting the cell as Custom "0000". This should leave your leading zero in place.
    Alternatively, just format as text.

    I suppose you mean: pre-format the entry range as text before any actual entry.

    Enter '0207 (with the apostrophe).
    It's never too late to learn something new.

    Hi,

    When I do the formatting above,its works as
    1 = 001
    but when I see the formatting again,then it is not as custom 000 but Special : Chinese
    What can be the reason that this change even I do nothing in the formatting?
    Thanks for your solution.
