Add a "0" to the Beginning of String

8 - Asteroid

Hello -- I have NCPDP numbers where some begin with 0 and are 7 characters. I want to change the data after the fact (takes me over 6 hours to run this script) to include the 0 in front when it gets removed and the NCPDP is only 6 numbers in a string. In excel, this is a simple formula of =TEXT([@NCPDP],"0000000"). So, the output will always be 7 characters but where there is a 0, it will be included instead of blank and the string only being 6 characters. I need to join this later to other strings that already include the 0. So an NCPDP # of 430495 should read 0430495 as a string.


I can't figure out how to do this in Alteryx using the Formula tool. I do not want to have to rerun this script again and add the Select tool to change to string before it is saved to yxdb file. I have over 14 million rows. Any help is appreciated.
