Thanks for the suggestion Jessica. We’ve got a few other suggestions on the site that are similar with scientific notation, etc. We’ll take a look at this area, and pay special attention to any cases that get a lot of votes. So please keep the votes coming to help us do a good job at prioritizing asks like this!

Maybe adopt the way how google spreadsheets is dealing with csv files. They simply ask, if you want to format numbers, or leave them as they are. Can't tell you how annoying it is, when e.g. amounts, get formated to date with no way of returning to the original number again. I switched to google spreadsheets for importing .csv files and download them afterwards, cause it works and doesn't destroy the data.Josef supported this idea ·
