I have a text file - containing data such as:

   AAJO011180A06755240105A    88.00309200810540
    AAJO011180A06755240105A    66.01009200811270
    AAJO011180A06755240105A   106.01709200810560
    AAJO011180A06755240105A    86.0240920081037L
    ACCE011180A067ADB30105A   190.00409200813570
    ACCE011180A067ADB30105A    68.0180920081342L
    AFAD011180200DF11E0105A   272.00109200810390
    AFAD011180200DF11E0105A    22.00809200810320
    AFAD011180200DF11E0105A    38.01509200810380
    AFAD011180200DF11E0105A    28.0220920081039L

I need a batch file or similar to add 2 zeros after the 4th Letter ie AAJO011180A06755240105A     will become AAJO00011180A06755240105A.

Any help will be appreciated.
