There are a couple of ways. Let's say you are looking for 7 digits altogether.

Method 1
NewString = '0000000' & thenumber;
NewString = right(newString, 7);

Method 2
while (len(thenumber) lt 7)
thenumber = '0' & thenumber;

I'm totally new to Acrobat:

In a fillable form, I have created a 5-digit numeric field but I actually need to pad the user-entry with leading zero's so that, for exmaple, if user entered "123", the field would become "00123". I assume the field needs to be formatted as "Custom" instead of "Number" but don't know what to put in "Custom Format Script". Again I have zero knowledge, so I'm hoping someone can tell me exactly how to do this .... much appreciated.
