Hello, I have a problem with reading a csv-file. One colum of the inputfile consists of characters and numbers. After reading the csv-file I create a new dataframe by dividing the values of that colum into more colums (then a colum contains just characters or numbers) but the numbers are converted to factors. How can I create the new dataframe without having the numbers converted to factors?
