"Read Excel without number parsing?"
I'm just building a process for extending some data I collected from the web earlier. The previous processes finally created an Excel file containing all the relevant data. There also were some numbers with leading zeros (postal codes, area codes) which were extracted and written as text (certainly because of this Excel didn't remove the leading zeros earlier). Now I want to grab that data again, and load it into my process via "Read Excel". Now guess what happens? All those numbers are parsed as integer, leading zeros are removed and when written via "Write Excel" one fraction digit is added to all those numbers (although they are displayed as integer before). The "Read CSV" operator allows to disable the unwanted parsing, do you have any suggestions what to do best in this case?
Thanks for all your hints and help.
