Default My zip code format is lost when merging from Excel to Word...

The postal code information should be stored as text in the data source, not
as a number. Enter the zipcode prefaced with a single quote.

I am merging addresses from Excel to Work and I lose zip code formatting
during the merge so that for all zip codes that begin with a zreo, the zero
is dropped. I have never had this problem before, how can I fix this?
Thanks!
