I've typically found that the file format column type guessing isn't very good. Can we somehow increase the sample size?

Also, occasionally to offset this I like to bring in all of the columns as a varchar(255). There is no option to update the column type for all of the columns in the format at once (like there this in the query view). This functionality would be really helpful.
