    Important: Elavon does not recommend padding the Reference Number field (Field 0007) with leading zeros. Should you choose to do so, be sure to store the value in your system as a String instead of an Integer. This will eliminate any potential discrepancies in how this field is presented in two-part transactions, and the chance of downgrades or fees is greatly reduced.
