Proceeding Zeros to an already existing column.
Hi, I'd like to add Proceeding zeros to an already existing column
Currently there are over 2000 rows in the, with a varying number of digits from 14. I'd like them all to be a 4 digit number.
So if the column has an entered number of 1, I'd like the proceeding zeros to make it a 0001
or 501, but 0501.
Is this currently possible?

I don't think you can update the column, but you can create a calculated field to do it. Would that work?
I was just playing with this the other day and this is what I came up with.
=LEFT("0000", 4  LEN([column]@row)) + [column]@row

Thanks again for your help! That worked.
