I am attempting to import a CSV file as a delimted text layer that has decimal values into QGIS 3.2. Whenever I do so, instead of QGIS reading the decimal values as real or double, it reads them as strings!

Interestingly, while I was working on the project as a draft prior to saving it, I had no problem with QGIS reading the data properly. It seems that once I saved the project, QGIS is failing to read my imported decimal values properly.

  • Have you tried capturing the numbers inside quotes (ex "4.02") inside your CSV? – evet2364 Jun 3 at 20:21
