## ZIP Code Export from Mappoint loses leading 0

Any help that someone can give would be GREATLY appreciated.

One of our clients uses Mappoint for her business. She imports a spreadsheet of Addresses (this works quite nicely) then plots them on her map with pushpins (this works just fine) ... she then defines a driving range (like everyone with a 30 minute radius) and Mappoint delivers just fine. She then clicks on the border of the driving range, selects "Export to Excel" and BAM! The leading zero's of the Zip Code are truncated, and being in NJ, all our Zip Codes begin with zero. The problem here is some of her addresses have the Zip +4, some don't. Is there a way to force Mappoint to export leading zero's to Excel? I already looked in Excel, no luck...

Thanks in advance!

2. Can you just append the 0 back on in Excel? Do something like
= Left("0000" & A1,5)
and use the Len function and if needed the If function to test for the zip4's..

Format the cells within excel to be zip-code type cells and the 0's come back
