Subject   st: replace a set of numbers with a second set of numbers

I want to replace a set of numbers (1 to 280) with another set of
numbers (201005050010 to ~201025050080)

the file has the time and distance between each of the 280 different
points (78,400 observations)

1 - 1
1 - 2
1 - 3
1 - 4
...
1 - 280
...
279 - 279
279 - 280

but the set of numbers was exported with a default setting and I need
to replace each number such that

objectid	zone_id
1	=      201005050010
2	=      201005050020
3	=      201005050040
4	=      201005050030
5	=      201005050060
6	=      201005050050
7	=      201005050100
8	=      201005050110
9      =      201005050070
10	=      201005050130

...

279	  =     201025050010
280	  =     201025050080

can someone make a suggestion for me regrading this? Im having
difficulty figuring it out in Stata.

Thanks,
Ty
