Need a regular expression

Hi all,

I need a regular expression that trunctates a string.

For example "0123456TUV" becomes "123456tuv"
Or
01230023FVF becomes 1230023FVF

Thanks

It looks like you are just dropping the 1st digit of the string.

Can you be more specific?

Sure, sorry if my question is unclear.

I just want to the leading zeros from the string, there can be o or many zeros.

Hope this makes sense,

Thanks
