zero pad a referenced document property

I am following directions which I found in another community post at: incremental pattern , specifically the post by Marc-Xavier Bilodeau.


Basically, I am creating a calibration plate where I want to etch dimensions down the side of the plate. I.E: 1,2,3,4... up to about 40 or so. The numbers would be on the left and right, so that's 80 or so sets of numbers


I've managed to reproduce what was described in the linked post and alter it to fit my needs. What I would like to be able to do now is "zero pad" the numbers which are less than 10, so I end up with 01, 02, 03... 38, 39, 40. The reason for this is because I want every marker to have two digits on it so you can be sure that you are seeing the whole area in an inspection image (I.E No part of the plate is blocked, which may not be evident in the image without having something being obviously missing).


Does anyone know if this is possible? I have already tried altering document/dimension display properties to no effect. I'd like to try to do this as one feature+pattern just to make sure the dimensions remain consistent, but I suppose I could just manually put them all in if there's no other alternative.
