Leading Zeros

3 posts in this topic

Say I have an entry into a file and it is 0000014. 7 Digits with 5 0's.

I want the next one to say 0000015.

I tried adding 1 to the 0000014 but it just comes out 15 because Autoit chops off the leading zeros. How Do I have it keep the 5 0's until it reaches 100 which then I would only need 4??

You want StringFormat():

$iVar = 14
$sVar = StringFormat("%07u", $iVar)
MsgBox(64, "Result", "$iVar = " & $iVar & ", and $sVar = " & $sVar)

:D
