I am writing a SAS dataset to an excel file using the FILE command, not the ODS to which I may not have permission since I am using SAS University edition.
Is there any commands to prevent the leading zeros from being stripped away when being written to the excel file, using the FILE command.

Please provide example of your data and how you wrote the file if you would like any tested code provided.
You may have to force quotes into the output data otherwise it is Excel stripping the leading values, treating a variable that should be character as a number.
