Issue

When importing numerical data using Automatic number format, trailing zeros might be added to the data. 

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

Change the Formatting to a setting other than Automatic. 

Cause

The trailing zeros are by design. For numbers formatted Automatic, we detect the first digit on which they differ, and display 3 digits beyond that.
