Text.Length Concat help

HI, 

I HAVE A TABLE with text codes and I needed to add zero (0) at the beginning of codes that have less than 10 characters as in the example below.
I thought of using text.legth in the power query with IF but I couldn't, I appreciate the help.

In the final result I need to create a text code again
