Leading zeroes #266
I wonder if leading zeroes should cause a column to come in as character? I know I can force the variable to be character and will do so in my current example.
But I suspect that numbers with leading zeroes should be treated as character more often than not. Examples: social security numbers, zip codes, phone numbers with country exit codes, numbers written written for alphalexical sorting, and agent identifiers in the 00 Section of MI6.
