Leading Zeros in GridView

I have a number coming out of a database  (between 1 and around 900), but it needs to have leading zeros up to four digits (1 becomes 0001, 900 becomes 0900).

I found an answer to another question that would add the leading zeros by transforming the string, but as I am adding this into a gridview using the 'Bind' argument (well so far), I can't use the solution.

 
<ItemTemplate>  

    <asp:Label ID="Label_1" runat="server" Text='<%#Bind("Value")%>'></asp:Label> 

</ItemTemplate>

I did try <%#Bind("Value", "{0:####}")%>, But that doesn't do the trick.

Any ideas?

Cheers
