Maintain field traits when 'setting variable'

Post

Hi, I'm having trouble with the 'Set Variable' function.  I'm using a script to copy a field's data (an auto-serial field) and enter it into another field in another table using the 'Set Field' function.  The problem is that the initial field's structure is a five-digit value (auto-serial, beginning with 00001), but when the field's value is copied to the other table, the value is only reported as non-zero numbers: e.g., 00001 is reported as 1, 00109 is reported as 109.  How can I set the properties of the script so that the entire value gets copied from one table's field to another table's field?

 

Thanks for your help.

K
