<IF the length of the string is 10 characters long.>
if you are using a ctiteria of Len([FieldName]) = 10

Why are you stripping the leading zeros?  This is most likely an ID field from another application.  The leading zero has meaning.  You wouldn't strip the leading zero off of zip code or SSN I hope.
