'Send to Excel' loses leading 0's

Hi,

I have a chart in dashboard, which contains some values with leading 0's. When 'Send to Excel', the leading 0's disappear in Excel.

Does anyone have the same experience and know how to resolve this?

May be try the expression =Text([Ship to Customer ID])

In general Qlikview will takes the first loaded value datatype as a default..

lets see the below scenario..

LOAD * INLINE [

    Year, CustID

    2015, 0123

    2014, 123

];

QV loads the data as below..

Year CustID

2015     0123

2014     0123

so, can you please check whether the first loaded column is having zero as prefix in Ship to CustomerID.. if not thats why the column is not treating as string..

Hi Jd,

as you can see from the screenshot of the chart, leading 0's are displayed fine in QVW, only  disappear when sent to excel,  somehow the format is lost.
