Can anyone tell me what data type I can use to store an numbers of this sort "087699" I want it to store the FIRST ZERO. If I use INT or double it removes the first zero

its solved

looks like a phone number.
so it's NOT a number, it's a string.
Any other data-type is wrong.

Quick anwser - you can't

You have to store any number starting with a '0' as a string as the datatype will remove it if you store it as a numerical data type.
