Storing Cost Centres as Text Fields

I have a problem at a client with cost centres. They have cost centres that are numeric some of which are prefixed with leading zeroes, some not-for example 12345 and 0012345. These are two distinct cost centres, but due to the formatting on the KOSTL field SAP tries to store both as 0000012345. This means that one of the cost centre creates will reject. Is there any way of storing these cost centres as text within KOSTL, so that both can be stored.
