Changing the workflow item text variable from container

Hello Experts,

There is an issue that I am facing where the workitem text has a document number. The leading zeroes are getting displayed in the box. I am new to workflow. So kindly advice. Is changing the task the only option . Changing the container variable here as this is a document number cannot be done ?

    This is not the problem of the container element. I think you can make use of conversion exits where the internal and external format of displaying and storing format would be different. I would suggest that if you want to avoid the leading zeros the possible solutios could be

    1. Use conversion exits and then move this new converted value into the workflow container and from there move it to task container.
    2. Use of ABAP statement like SHIFT statements. There you have addtion which can delete the leading zeros.

    Whatever be the approach first you have to convert the value of internal format into external user readable format and then move back and forth between workflow and task container.
