Dispalying trailing zeros in Bex

Hi,

I have an infoobject with ALPHA conversion to remove leading zeros. Is there any way to display leading zeros on selected Bex reports for that infoobject?

Thanks

    Hello,

    With excel there is a problem displaying leading zero for a number field, the only way you can probably do it is by

    A. Create a new Character Object and Pass the information with leading Zeros in the Cube using update rules or

    2. Create a Virtual Character and populate the Info object with Leading zeros during Query Run time.

    Hope this helpsÂ…

    Hi,

    It's not a problem to show leading zeros in Excel!

    You need to write a macro and for cells with these zeros set a format:

    SET PROPERTY OF CELL 'NumberFormat' = '@'

    Best regards,

    Eugene
