Suggested Fixes

  • Ensure that the schema type is set to number for compatibility with the float format.
  • If the schema represents a different data type, consider using a compatible format or removing the float format.
  • Ensure that the format used aligns with the schema's type and represents the desired data representation (e.g., double for larger number).
