**ultramarcas**Hello!

In my form there is a field called "CNPJ", where the input data are like this (14 caracters): E.g: "01234567000101".

When I export for XLS or CSV, the Excel hides the "0" (zero), entered at the begin of the sequence of numbers.

I tried to setting up the cell properties of "CNPJ" at the Excel for "Number", but the zero was supressed.

How can I resolve it?

**jonathan**Hi,

If it start with zero(0), Excel will suppress it because it is not considered a number by excel. Try to make it a

**text**type instead. Try format command to that particular column in excel, and set it to**text**or**general**..If it still does not work, try appending an

**apostrophe(')**at the start of the value -- i.e.**'**01234567000101Please try this. Inform us if this does not make the difference.

Thanks.
