Re: padding in ToString


Table["data-"<>ToString[
      NumberForm[i, 3, NumberPadding->"0"]], {i,0,5}]

{data-0000,data-0001,data-0002,data-0003,data-0004,data-0005}

Table["data-"<>ToString[
      PaddedForm[i, 3, NumberPadding->"0"]], {i,0,5}]

{data-0000,data-0001,data-0002,data-0003,data-0004,data-0005}

data-0000
data-0001

How can I do that?
