I have a form with a field and if the user enters a number <10, for example, then I want the number to appear with a zero in front of it.

For example:

If "3" is entered, make it appear as "03"

But if for example "12" is entered, leave it alone and let it be "12"

Just set the Data Type to Text if that is an option for your field.

Then you can use the Before Update Event on your Form or Control to test the length of the data entered.  If 1 then add the 0 in front.
