I'm dealing with some ID numbers that show up fine in Excel but get converted to Scientific Notation whenever I import them in PBI, which also changes the numbers for some reason. Is there any way to prevent scientific notation? I've tried changing the column format to text but it doesn't make a difference.

Glad to hear that you've solved this problem. You could help accept it as solution. Your contribution is highly appreciated.
We have a similar problem. Some zeros in Tables and Matrices appear with scientific notation, dispite being set to Integer.
We solved it by rounding to two decimals with ROUND([measure], 2), and then changing the format to 'Whole number' in the Modelling tab.
I have a text file with chess moves such as 1.e3 which kept getting changed to scientific notation.
I changed all the e's in my file to é (e acute) and on importing to excel it left them alone!
I don't care if 1.e3 looks like 1.é3

Having e acute instead of e is a small pice to pay!
