I have read articles on retaining leading zeroes in Excel comma delimited files, using the Text Import Wizard.

But, doing so simply imports data into Excel.  If you save the resulting Excel file as a comma delimited file, you still lose the leading zeroes.

Is there not a way of retaining leading zeroes in comma delimited files in Excel?
