I need to take the values in a column that contains numbers with and without decimals and return them in the following format:

Cell Value:         Result Needed: (zero filled on the left, four characters total)
1.8                        0180
2                           0200
.25                        0025

Assuming values in column A, in column B enter formula:

=A1*100

Then format with custom format "0000".

Or if not needed for onward calculations, you can use:

=TEXT(A1*100,"0000")

This latter option has no need for custom format.

Thanks
