[nycphp-talk] PHP addition and leading zeros

I am retrieving a four digit value from a mysql db.  It is an  
unsigned zerofill field so there are leading zeros.

I add 0001 to the value.  However, I find that I lose my leading  
zeros, which I want to keep.  I also tried incrementing the value but  
that produces the same result.

Any suggestions for how to keep the leading zeros?

Thanks,

-Aaron
