How to show 8 digits in personnel number field.

Hi Guys, I have a question: Does anybody knows how to show the 8 digits of the personnel number of an employee.

For example, If I have PERNR: 100, I want that in the field of the PERNR appears: 00000100, I mean, including ceros to the left,

Does anybody knows how to do this?, because actually in the system appears only: 100, for example.

Best Regards to all and thanks a lot for your help.

    You don't say where you want this to appear as 8 digits or why. The field is a numeric field and that is standard display format in SAP and EXCEL for it to be shown this way. The leading zeroes are there just not displayed.

    You can try and put the pernr in a char like field in the table you download to excel and concatenate an apostrophe with pernr, thus downloading '00000100 to excel which will be shown as text.

    Mmmm. well, I want that the Personnel number appears in PA30 o PA40 for example, I can´t remember a way to do this, I do that once but I don´t find my notes about it.

    I remember that it exist a kind of flag but I don´t remember how to enable or disable that.

    I only want to change the format from: 130 to 00000130 only.

    Thanks a lot for your help.
