Hello

I have a few csv files that has the following values in a scientific format:

ACCOUNT_NUMBER, INVOICE_NUMBER
1E+11, 2.0225E+11

However, when I open the csv file in notepad, it displays the format I need.
"ACCOUNT_NUMBER","INVOICE_NUMBER"
"100000309953","202250172428"

My question is, how can I import the desired notepad value (100000309953) using ssis when the csv file has them recorded as a scientific value (1E+11, 2.0225E+11)?

Is there a way to convert the csv file to a txt file format, or is there way that I can use SSIS to convert the scientific value.

I suggest use SQL Import/Export wizard and btw - in EXCEL, just make the columns bigger and you'll see the actual value....

What you see in the 'text' version is what you are actually getting.  You need to tell Excel to treat those columns as text to get the same display.  This is a common occurrence where the 'text' is all numbers.

The CSV file does not have the values in scientific notation. Excel is displaying them in that format. You should not need to do anything special to import the file using SSIS.
