----------------------------------------

             Summary: Don't use VARCHAR ColumnType for CSV files, Excel etc.
                 Key: METAMODEL-57
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/METAMODEL-57
             Project: Metamodel
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Kasper Sørensen
            Assignee: Kasper Sørensen
             Fix For: 4.1


With METAMODEL-54 fixed we can now address a conceptual issue of using VARCHAR as the "go
to" text ColumnType of most MetaModel modules.

Let's have a generic STRING (or TEXT?) column type and use this in case of the CSV module,
the Excel module, the Fixed Width module etc. That would be more representative of what we
actually provide since VARCHAR leaks the types of relational databases into all kinds of other
modules.
