 I think the only problem is the "leading zeros" definition.
The function itself is correct, but it has to be intended as "number of
digits of the cell, filled with leading zeros"

Hi Gary,

If you use the excel notation "00"#, you get your 2 leading zeros. But
you're right, it's a bug. The formatting should be right
automatically. For once, the MS notification is right ;-)

Wikipedia defines leading zero as follows:

"A leading zero is any 0 digit that comes before the first nonzero
digit in a number string in positional notation.[1] For example, James
Bond's famous identifier, 007, has two leading zeros."

However, if I put '7' in a cell and select format 2 leading zeroes, I
get '07'.
LO gives one leading zero too few.
