Numeric question with Leading zeroes


How do I set up a numeric question that requires a 5-digit answer - taking into consideration leading zeroes? The answer could range from 00001-99999. How do I ensure that 001 is recorded differently from 00001? Currently when I try on these two values it only registers "1" which means they're not differentiated.

If it is not relevant to the survey, but relevant to the data anlysis, you can reconstruct the data for this question after the data capture in you analysis package.

Instead of a numeric question just use an open end question with a min length of 5 and a max length of 5.  You will have to do some custom verification to allow only numbers.
