Looked and looked for my situation. I have a customer that sends me reports from their system what the release number of their PO is to be 4 digits - this would include leading 0's when less than 1000. Simple, just use a text field to upload - but - they mix the format some are 0010 and others are 10. They also have blanks in their Release field.

I am trying to create a formula field to convert the one filed into a corrected field. It really does not matter if the original is a text or number field as long as I get the 0000 format in the second field. I set up the second field as a Text Formula field.

Here is the formula I tried if the [PO RELis in text format:

If(Trim([PO REL]=""),"",Right("0000" & ([PO REL]),4)

Here is the formula I tried if the [PO REL] is in number format:

If(Not IsNull([PO REL]),"",Right("0000" & ([PO REL]),4)

The Right("0000" & ([PO REL]),4) works great but the complete formula does not.

Sure could use some help.

Thank you,
