Description

Hi,
when importing CSV, we often have text identifiers that are similar to numerics, ie: "09123". CSV plugin auto types this filed to numeric 9123 when we need to keep it as it should be.
It would be nive to be able to choose field type destination and have an automatic cast to this.
Currently, we need to switch to ods / xslx to keep those types, but that is not straightforward
Cheers
Régis
