Posting a string with a leading zero

Post by wrothman@dealermagic.net »

We are sending csv string with 8 digits. When the leading number is a zero, the simple database ignores the zero and posts 7 digits to the table. How can this be corrected. Our eight digit number is random.

Would it be possible to generate an 8-digit number between 10000000 and 99999999?

Our simple db does not preserve leading zeroes so a number like 00001111 would drop the first four zeroes.

Another way you could work around this issue is to prepend your 8 digit number with a letter such as A00123456.

Hope this helps.
