I'm using a Workflow in a huge process, one of which is to set an Infopath column to be incremental. However, this incremented column value has to be in a certain format and cannot be done in Designer as formatting it there doesn't effect the data itself (That will be used later in Infopath / Workflows).


So, anyway to get a calculated column that has a formatted number ("000")? From my understanding, XSLT functions cannot be used in a calculated column.
