Given a table that has a column with an SAP product_hierarchy_id.

This step below shows how to left pad that id based on its length.

PadProductHierarchy = Table.TransformColumns(#"Changed Type1",
  {
    {"product_hierarchy_id", each 
      if 
        _ <> "" and 
        _ <> null and 
        Text.Length(_) > 0 and 
        Number.IsOdd(Text.Length(_)) 
      then 
        "0" & _ 
      else 
        _, 
      type text
    }
  }
)
