Resolution

To avoid leading zeros being stripped from item barcodes:

  1. Export the file from Report Designer in csv format.
  2. Before importing into Excel, open a blank spreadsheet in Excel and format the column which will receive the item barcodes as a 'text' column.
  3. Load data from csv file into the spreadsheet.
