Dear All,

I have a string variable of the type listed below:

id
0008
0020
016A
0160C

How do I remove the leading zeros from this variable? I tried using
the -split- command, but it removed both leading and trailing zeros.
The end result should look like this:

id
8
20
16A
160C

Thank you
Raphael
