Dear all,
Does anyone know a quick way in STATA to add leading zeros to a numeric variable (even if I have to convert it to a string, that would be okay). 
A typical example might be to convert the following numbers to a standard five-digit number with leading zeros:
2 -->  00002
33 --> 00033
473 --> 00473
59724 --> 59724
Thanks.
