There is a table Within the sql server  - the format of that  column in decimal(18, 0)
When I import the csv data into that sql server table and then compare the imported data to the original data – this is what I see –
The decimals are getting truncated resulting in 7000 less – how to fix this?

Original CSV Data      Imported Data in SQL Server
14010.1      14010
18283.56      18283
14745.5      14745

The "0" in your data type DECIMAL(18,0) indicates that there are to be no decimals. You would need to change this in the table to the number of decimals you need. Eg DECIMAL(18,2)
