How to format a list column to have the numbers in the format "0000"

Occasional Contributor

Everything is in the question.


I would like to format a number title column of one of my list to have four digits.

For example "45" will be "0045".

 

Could you help me?

Solution

@EiC4733 you can format the column with the following JSON to achieve this:

{
  "$schema": "https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/sp/column-formatting.schema.json",
  "elmType": "div",
  "txtContent": "=if(@currentField <= 9, '000'+'@currentField', (if(@currentField >= 10 && @currentField <= 99,'00'+'@currentField', (if(@currentField >= 1000 ,'@currentField','0'+'@currentField'))"
}

@EiC4733 You can also use the padStart function to simplify.

 

{
  "$schema": "https://developer.microsoft.com/json-schemas/sp/v2/column-formatting.schema.json",
  "elmType": "div",
  "txtContent": "=padStart(toString(@currentField),4,'0')"
}

 

Good Luck!
