When you create a material with leading zero followed by numeric values, the leading zeros are truncated.
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to Product Data work center.
- Select New material under Common Tasks.
- Enter the Material ID, upon saving the leading zeros are truncated.
This is general system behavior.
If the material ID have alpha-conversion enabled, then the below mentioned behavior is the same for all alpha-conversion identifiers.
If you enter the material ID with leading zeros followed by numeric values, the zeros will be truncated. But if you have a material ID with leading zeros followed by alphanumeric values, then the zeros will not be truncated.
