    Paste values in a column, then apply custom number format

    In column A I have 4 digit numbers such as 0801, 1225, etc. These all have green smart tags that I want to get rid of.

    I am trying Columns(1) = format(Columns(1),"####") but it's not working.

    Basically, set the values of column(1) to the values of column(1) which will clear the smart tags. But that truncate any leading zeros. So then I want to apply a number format so that everything in column(1) has 4 digits.

    Any ideas?

    Before you enter your data, select the column, do a right-click, and select "Format Cells..."
    Under "Category", select "Text".

    or
    =TEXT(A1,"0000")
