You probably need to read up on the scipen= argument in ?options. What is displayed at the console is not what is stored:

> x <- 1619052826499
> print(x)
[1] 1.619053e+12
> dput(x)
> options(scipen=10)
> print(x)
[1] 1619052826499

Is there a way to tell R to not import numbers as scientific notation
(read.csv).  So that 1619052826499 will not be imported as 1.619053e+12.
