String with "E" interpret exponentiel

Hello, 

I have one colum (String) with this value '6E040', when i export dataset to excel, this value is 6000000...

Excel interpret E as exponentiel. 

I tried with recipe prepare to add quote (concat('"', column, '"')), but it's not working because i have this result "6.0E40"  .

Someone can help me.

Thank you

Hello,

This formula should work for your case: concat('"', strval('column'), '"')

Thank you MarcH, 

Do you have an other solution ?  because i don't really want to add quotes.

Since it's Excel that is interpreting 6E040 as a number, you could also check how to get Excel to stop automatically converting your data in order to keep it as a String.
