Text1 = chr$(Rnd*10+48)+chr$(Rnd*10+48)+chr$(Rnd*10+48)+chr$(Rnd*10+48)+chr$(Rnd*10+48)

num is probably a variant assuming itself as a number type variable and missing off leading zeros.
You need to explicitly define your variable 'num' to be a String.
i.e.
Dim num as String
0

Alternativley just change the line:
Text1 = num
to
Text1 = Format(num,"00000")
0

Option Explicit

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Randomize Timer
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    ' Int((upperbound - lowerbound + 1) * Rnd + lowerbound)
    Dim lngNum As Long
    Dim strNum
   
    lngNum = CLng((99999 - 0 + 1) * Rnd + 0)
    strNum = Format(lngNum, "00000")
    Label1.Caption = strNum
End Sub
