ExcelXP Leading Zeroes

Elsewhere I have seen that it was suggested to use


to retain leading zeroes in XML. It works fine for 5-or less digits, but when I have a 6-digit number, an extra leading 0 is appearing in Excel:

SAS 234567 --> Excel 0234567

I have also tried style={tagattr="format: @"}; but no leading zeroes are retained in that case.

Any other ideas?

This works fine for me when I use a format of 00000.

What does excel say the format is for your cells?

Make sure that you have the downloaded the latest ExcelXP tagset from the ODS Markup page. Using the text format "@" should have worked as well.
