I need to extend the answer code field to accept 6 digits for each answer. The system we are going to import the answers into needs a 6 digit code. Any help would be great I have built out he entire survey and just needs this as the last piece.

You would hack this into the source code. But be aware that this might have an impact on several levels, e.g. Expression Manager.

Don't you think it would be easier to write something that will add a digit when importing the answers? I guess this would be a lot saver...
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:
