A while ago I created a custom field for my Organizations module to hold 
the vat number. Now I just realized that this custom field does not keep 
the leading zeros. I don't remember what type I used, probably integer, 
since vat number contains no letters, but surely is not a text type, 
because I creating a new text field for testing purpose and if I enter 
here a number starting with zero, the zero is kept. But I cannot simply 
delete the existing field and substitute it with a new text field 
because if I do I would lose all the data that have been already 
inserted. So I have to change the type of this custom field from 
whatever it is now (that doesn't keep zeros) to a text field (which 
keeps zeros).

Is there a way I can achieve this?
