I am using phpexcel in drupal to import data from uploaded excel file by the user. I have a column with number type in excel. But its a long number. When I use phpexcel_import() I get "982000364137756" in excel as "9.8200036413776E+14" . Is there any way to resolve this issue. I does not have the option of changing data type in excel file. I have to find a way to it by script.
