Hi

I am trying to merge two datasets which have the same variable coded
differently in each.

In dataset 1, the variable is 6 digits, with the first digit being a zero.

in dataset 2, the same variable is 5 digits, and the first digit (which
should be a zero) as been truncated.

Does anyone know how to add a zero to the variable in the second dataset?

thank you!
