How to add leading zeros to a characteristic in CT04

The business is requesting that we change a class characteristic so that it adds leading zeros. Currently the characteristic is set as numeric with length of 6, no decimals. Is there any way via template or otherwise to force this characteristic to store leading zeros, as recorded against the characteristic?

    Hi David,

    1. If you are mentioning about the "Characteristics"This is Standard Field name.

    2. You will not be able to influence the same,

    3. Also i doubt if you are talking about the Characteristic Value - Since only in the Char Value we will be able to define the length, etc.

    4. In case of Charvalues if you want leading zeros then create it as character , where you can store with leading zero

    • Hi,

      If your char is in NUM format, there are fields like number of characters, decimals etc. Also there are fields for Templates and Exponent display. Please explore these two fields, Using these fields, it is possible to enable leading zeros for the characteristics (Is it leading zeros or trailing zeros!)
