Data load in Qlik Sense as a open text frield

Hi, 

 

I'm loading in a field called OrderID in my app and then doing a count(Distinct OrderID) and getting different results from my data source. 

I found the problem but don't know how and if i can solve it. 

In my data source the OrderID is '1234' and '1234.' now when the data is loaded in to Qlik sense, Qlik ignores the fullstop after the number so i don't get a true reflection on the count of distinct orders. 

Has anyone else come across this issue and/or know a work around?
