%char(month_field) yields just ‘1’ and not ’01’

Why does the BIF %CHAR drop the leading zero on my month. For example, I have a month value of numeric 07 and I want to make it character with %char and I get '7' back instead of '07'.

Try using %editwd
Here is a sample of the same problem wh had with zip code.

This does not work
zip = %char(zipcod);

This does work
