How to autogenerate an ID with a certain number of characters?

Post

     Hi everyone,

     Total newbie to Filemaker, apologies if this is too simplistic a question, but I need to create an ID field that is automatically populated, but it needs to be between 1 and 400 characters.  So, if the first person is added, that person's ID needs to be 0001, not just the number 1.

     Is there a way to do that?

     Thank you so much!
