Clearinghouse Program Length

I noticed today that the program lengths I entered into the majors are appearing as "1, 2, 3, etc" but they need to be 6 numbers long  as in "000001" or "000004". We received errors from the Clearinghouse report for program length being "too short" and they need them in this particular format. Thanks!

The Student Clearinghouse documentation

The Student Clearinghouse documentation https://studentclearinghouse.info/onestop/wp-content/uploads/EnrollRept_ProgrammingandTestingGuide.pdf has on page 23 the following program length description:
Length of the instructional program in years, months, or weeks as published by the school. Format “nnnnnn,” with implied decimal b/n third and fourth digits. 
• 000100 – one tenth (1/10) 
• 001000 – one (1) 
• 010000 – ten (10) 
• 100000 – one hundred (100) 
Space fill if Program Indicator is “N”.
If the program length is 2 years, we are using a format of “002000” which appears to be correct.
I tried running the report and saw that for the first student in the list, that he did have “000000”. I looked up his degree major track (Church Planing/Certificate in Church Planting) and there is no program length entered.
The next couple of students in had “004000” as the program length which I believe is correct.
I assume the issue is missing program lengths for degree tracks.
Please let me know if that does not seem correct or there are further questions.
