In google-ing through the mail list I see some discussion from 2000, but 
nothing since.  Is there a way I can preseve the zeros?  It would extra great

What do you mean with preserving zeros?

If you are dealing in numbers than a custom format of 000000 will always
show 6 digits, if necessary with leading zeros. If you work with strings
then anything can be preserved.
