Hi,



How do you proceed to force a column detected as int in a R script to as string in output in order to preserve a specific format . Example : input = 06000 give an output dataset = 6000, and i would i input = 06000 which should give an output = 06000.

    Hi,

    Good news, the latest version of DSS (3.1) now includes this feature.

    You can either:

    * Force the dataframe to respect the storage schema of the DSS dataset by using

    dkuReadDataset("mydataset", inferColClassesFromData=FALSE)

    * Force the col class for a set of columns:

    dkuReadDataset("mydataset", colClasses=c(mycolumn = "character"))
