    you could use integer as well. For faster searches integer is better.

    create table zip(zipcode int)

    insert into zip select 07054
    insert into zip select 08620

    --search
    select * from zip where zipcode =08620
    select * from zip where zipcode =07054

    For displaying on the reports you could add a leading zero if the length is 4.
