    I am doing a fixed width export from a table and trying to keep the leading
    zeros in a field the zeros are in the table but lost after the export

    Create a query that is based on the table. In place of the field with the
    leading zeroes, use a calculated field with an expression similar to this:

    MyFieldToExport: Format([RealFieldName], "0000000000")

    In the above example, I've assumed that you want 10 characters in the
    exported value. Change the number of zeroes to meet your needs.

    Then export this query.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
