pls check the applied steps on the right side. Is there a step which is changed type? I think after you import the data, PBI will automaic detect the data type and create that step.

@fab196 what @ryan_mayu suggested. Also in excel maybe you have decimal values but zeros after decimals are not shown and when you loaded it into power BI, it used the data type as the number and showing the decimal value.
