    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.
