Online creation of a dataset leads to random text being changed into a date (year-month-day)?

Hi all,

Since few days now, when creating a new dataset (online) by importing a text or excel file (import is successful) some of the data are randomly changed into a date (i.e. “ACOT13(10)” becomes “2001-12-13”). See attached screenshot from the original file (bottom screenshot) and what is actually imported online on plot.ly (first screenshot).
This happens with several datasets, I’ve also reimported old dataset (previously uploaded to plotly without problems few weeks ago) and now they are not imported correctly.

Any idea what could be causing this?

Thanks in advance,
Alban

What is imported in the dataset by Plot.ly (circled is what has been transformed into date):
32 PM

Original Text file or Excel file with the correct values:
31 PM
