Hi, i'm doing this assignment, where its a maintenance, payroll program. the user has a menu and one field is employee number. the number has to be a 5 digit number, but if the user enters 12 it needs to output 00012 in the space. how do i get the extra zeros??? i am doing a function that will go to where it's being inputed, check to make sure its 5 or less numbers and then result it back to the main program, but how do i change it to a five digit number with the zeros to be the result??? please help!! thanks

you can always use the intstr and strint convert the number back and forth from strings.


var num : int
var strnum : string

get num
strnum := intstr (num)

if 5 - length (intstr (num)) > 0 then
    for rep : 1 .. 5 - length (intstr (num))
        strnum := "0" + strnum
    end for
    put strnum
end if
