Can a number field starts with ceros 001 instead of 1?

Hi everyone,
I want to know if it's possible to save a number field like 001?
cause when I enter 001 it appears to me like just 1

and don't want to this field be text

As per my understanding if you save a value 001 in Number field then it will save as 1 in backend.

Hi David,

You cannot save number field as 001 , If you save '001' in number field it will remove the leading zeroes and save it as 1.

Thank You

Hi David,

By default, Number field omit leading zero.

My suggesstion go with text field and do a validation rule to avoid entering non number values. Find the below link it will helpful to you.
