Padding is the action of adding 0 to the left or the right of a text value until you reach a certain string lenght.

The padding function can be useful in OpenRefine if you lost leading zero while importing or transforming your data.

Of couse you can hack the example below to add letters or any other type of charactere.

padding left up to four digit
"0000"[0,4-value.length()] + value

padding righ up to four digit
value + "0000"[0,4-value.length()]
