Leading zeros

Postby b_f_mcd@yahoo.com » Fri Mar 15, 2019 5:54 pm

I am reading social security numbers from an excel file and they are formatted as "000-00-0000" Robotask drops the leading zero on the number. I have searched everywhere i the forums and cannot figure out how to fix this.

Look at this parameter (see screenshot)

If you use default parameter (General format (auto)) then EXCEL set this value as a number and suppresses lead zeros
Use "Set values as text" value. In this case EXCEL set value as-it-is and set the cell format to text
