How can we format number fields to pad zeros to the left?

Hi,
 
How can we format a custom number or text field to pad zeros (0) on the left of a 5-digit number.
For e.g: If user enters 346, then it should be saved and displayed as "00346".
 
Thanks and regards,
Ambili

You can use the lpad formula

For instanceTo 'pad' out a day to always be two digits try:-

lpad(text(day(UsageEndDate)),2,'0')
