BISM : Importing Text Files into Power Pivot

A recent post has shown an issue with the import of some text files into powerpivot. It would appear that, for some fields the default import for text files assumes integer data types regardless of the underlying type. Because the import utility cannot be configured to specify the data type for fields, the data in columns are dropped from the import.
