I have a numeric field that reads Object>Field=Numeric>Pattern Display=Num.Integer()

When entering zeros as numerical data at the beginning of the number; the zeros will not appear.  Do I need to change the pattern?  Thanks

Click on the field that will be using the leading zeros.

Make sure this field is set to Numeric Field (Object Palette - Field tab - Type:)

On the same Field tab is a button that reads "Patterns..." click on the arrow

Click "Display" and in the "Pattern:" field type "num{99999}" (this will give you a five digit input (45=00045) adjust the number of 9's according to your need.

Do not include the quotation marks for the  text to enter.
