This topic was covered once before a year ago. But the fix recommended does not seem to apply to the newest google sheets API. I use the Google Authenticate node, then the google sheets connector and then a Sheets Updater node. Google taking my Decimal fields and making them text by applying the ’ in front of them.
Original Post: Google API: Sheets updater saves values as strings
The google API says there is a parameter VALUE INPUT OPTION to correct that behavior but its not exposed in the knime node.
The solution prior used the depricated google sheets ervice provider. I tried that using the writeRaw=false but that did not help. Is there a similar solution with the newer authentication and sheets connectors?
FYI: The old solution works on on a Google Sheets Writer, but not on the Google Sheets Updater.
