The example format of the number I gave for this was just an example. The number may not necessarily begin with all zeroes. Actually, there is a specific four-digit string of numbers that will precede the five-digit number I need to send to the receiving system. Those four digits will always be the same. What will change will be the last five digits of the nine-digit number. With that said, how would I use the information that Thomas and Dick have provided for me to work with in the xlate? I am sorry for making you all think the nine-digit number would begin with leading zeroes.

Thanks for all of your recommendations.
