I have to guess if you used a boomerang or a sling to retrieve your data. My
blind guess is you used read.table, or odbc.

Assuming read.table: use the parameter colClasses to force that column to be
read in as a string instead of a number. The function uses the first few
lines to guess the data type, which can be wrong.
