in reply to Formatting a csv column as 'number'

This sounds like an Excel problem to me, for example if you create a text file containing:

'0100',"0100",0100

Open it in Excel then save it. You will see that anything Excel thinks could be a number (or a date, or fraction, or whatever) it treats as one and messes up accordingly.

It makes some jobs that should be simple a real pain
