Undesireable Number formatting - Strange Import Behavoir

I just started having a strange issue with my “item number” and “url_key” attributes.  When importing these numbers from a XML excel 2003 file or a csv file (attached), I am getting arbitrary decimal and exponential values for these two attributes.  I can verify the CSV is accurate going into the import. 

Attached are Pictures of:

1. The CSV portion of the import containing the “item number” (highlighted
2. The Front End after the import
3. The Backend Product Data after the import
4.  The Attribute settings after the import

Is this a known bug?  Is there a fix?  Any ideas would be appreciated…

This was a weird one.  I resolved it by re-uploading catalog...............not fun but necessary.  Don’t know what happened.  Appears to be resolved.

Hi Roco,

What do you mean with “re-uploading” catalog? I’m running into the same kind of problems just now…

Thanks,
Sander
