Prevent number from being exported as scientific number

So I scrape a website with EAN/barcode numbers, the problem is the export data to csv option converts the numbers to scienfitic notation, which is useless since converting them back in excel doesn't get the original number.

Don't export the data. Press ctrl+a and copy all data to excel manually.
Hope that works.

This is actually an Excel issue. WS is not doing those conversions. You can confirm this by viewing the CSV with Notepad. So you have to fix it in Excel. Maybe change column format to "Text".

Hi i actually did that before posting, but it seems something did change it inbetween scraping and openign in excel. I've fixed it now. Thanks for alerting me that it wasn't an issue with the scraper.
