Hi.


Not sure what test values fit your needs, but does this help?



function noZeros arg1.arg2
if the length of arg1 <> the length of arg2 and arg1 = arg2  then return "false"  else return "true"
end noZero



This sidesteps several issues, but may not address, as I mentioned above, all your needs. But it will work with similar numbers that only differ by the number of leading zeros.

Feeling pretty clueless here but...

I need ("5" = "005") to be false. This is
for password validation.
