As a data analyst that gets data from all sorts of places, I'd like Dataiku DSS to do more of the heavy lifting when it comes to parsing number columns so that I don't have to take a lot of time to figure out how to do the parsing on my own.
- One "accounting oriented data set I was looking at from a CSV file was using the accounting style for negative numbers with the ( ) before and after the number. See here for a more complete discussion.
- I suspect that others have other examples. Please jump in with more examples.
- It would be nice if the import parser dealt with these common-ish cases.
- Or It would be nice if the Extract Number Visual Recipe Step could handle more cases
