Is there a trick to creating a join to a zip code field in ArcMap?

After loading a map based on zip codes USA_Zip_codes, I have attempted to join an external zip code file.   None of the records join.

 

The map shows the field format as Text length = 10, Read Only = no.    The excel spreadsheet (xlsx 2016) is using a column called Zip_code with a format text.  No records join on these fields no matter what I do.

 

Any suggestions?    My ultimate goal is to simply create a map of gradient shaded zip codes based on a value range.

 

 

Thanks .... I am new to ArcMap
