Setting the data type in the data asset node of Modeler Flow

When handling numeric data in CSV, values with a large number of digits are judged to be invalid records because they fall outside the Int32 range.

From the customer's point of view, this data itself is not abnormal, and there are cases where they want to handle the data as is and create a flow to create a model.

We would like to see the Int32 restriction extended or the ability to customize the data type after selecting the data to be used in the data asset node.

    It seems that the data type is automatically determined at the first 1000 lines, but there are cases where large numbers are contained after 1000 lines, so the ability to manually specify the data type is necessary.
