Leading zeros with Part Lister to Excel

Is there a way to retain leading zeros when exporting a BOM using the Part Lister to an xls file?


One of my columns is PKG_TYPE which contains the value "0603" among others.  When I export the BOM to an .xls file, I lose the leading zero and am left with "603".  If I export to text, then import to Excel, I can define that column to be text on import, in which case I get my leading zero.  I would like to eliminate this intermediate step, if possible.
