Counter in XI

Hi! I'm wondering if it is possible to use a conter in message mapping like following :

counter -

> target field

(initial value = 0000)

(increment = 1)

My question is if I can use 0000 as initial value? because when I test it it only writes out only 0. I believe that counter function can't interpret numbers that starts with 0000 then it understands it as one 0 but when i write 1000 as initial value then it is ok.

anyone who knows this?

Use the initial value as 0 and use the FormaNumber standard function to format the number in the desired way.
