How to display leading zeros in a report

Hi folks,

I am doing a HR report and the users are very much used to seeing a two digit numeric value as the pay scale since their legacy days.

In BW, I have the Pay Scale defined as a character (2) and it shows the values on the report as follows:

Pay Scale

-


0

1

2

3

11, etc.

But the users would like to see 00, 01, 02, 03, 11, etc.

Under the query properties, display tab, there are four separate options - display zeros, show zeros as, etc. I tried all the options but the pay scale still does not show the leading zeros. I remember seeing a SAP note a while back that talks about this. Does anybody know how to force the leading zeros on the BEx report.

Thanks.

Abdul
