    Hello, Stew99!

    I'll format the problem.
    . . Maybe others will be tempted to try it.


    Use the digits 0-9 exactly twice.
    Code:
              A B C
             D E F
          - - - - -
              G H I
            J K L
          M N P
          - - - - -
          Q R S T U
    I've made some observation . . .


    Assuming a number may not begin with zero: .  0 \:\neq \:\{A, D, G, J, M, Q\}

    Also, neither C nor F can be zero.
    . . Otherwise: . I = U = 0 ... and we'd have three 0's.

    \text{Moreover, }E \neq 0\;\cdots\;\text{ else }J=K=L=0

    . . Stay tuned . . .
