I am fetching some data from Database, i have a number field.
I need to dislay Leading Zeros for that field.

Suppose it fetches 95 from database, it should Display 0000095 while showing Report.

I Tried many Ways,
FORMAT(FIELDA,"000000000") but formula editor returns error Boolean value is required.

Same error is returned.

Please Suggest solution

Try a format specifier of all 9s. E.g. "99999999".

Convert your field to string, so formula should be like below
Right("000000000" & CStr(FIELDA),9)

There is an option Show Leading Zero[^] in Formatting Numbers dialog box[^]

Also check this for formula(leading zero)
Crystal Reports: Missing Data[^]

For Display String in the Format Editor for a 5 digit int Zip code CStr({Payee.Zip},"00000",0)[^]

"00000" is the format, 0 is the number of decimal places.
