Some numbers formatted as string

Hi Experts,

I have an amount column in the database inthis i have some of the amounts formatted as string and i am getting a huge mismatch

I have tried Num#() and *1 but nothing worked.

Please suggest a workaround to fix this permanently in the load script.

Try

LOAD

     Evaluate(FIELD) as FIELD,

     ...

FROM ....;

Note that Qlik won't be able to actually store more than 14 significant digits, AFAIR.
