thanks, setting that variable to nil solves my problem. 

It was a bit puzzling to me, because of the fact that once a string is 
somewhere in the column the exponential number came out as is (I guess because 
then the table entry is no longer interpreted as a number but as a string).  
It was also confusing because HTML export is different and just puts out what 
is in the orgmode table.

Maybe one should change the default of the variable to nil? 
Just a suggestion, as I said,  my problem is solved.

Thanks again
