Why do I get only a 99% weighting for segments with identical numbers?

Why do I get the message:

"Numbers of entities are different but corrected by memoQ" with weighting 99% for segments with identical numbers?
For example: 123

Because such numbers occur very frequently in large tables, this slows working greatly.
More important, is there some option that can be set to solve this problem?

Regards
Tony

You can use Preparation > Populate number-only segments to take care of all segments that are just numbers. They will be confirmed, if that's how you have set it.

John

Thanks for you reply, but unfortunately it does not solve my problem (the "Populate number-only segments" option was set).

Regards
Tony

Addendum:

Setting the checkmark for "Populate unconfirmed rows with text in target" solved the problem, but I am not sure whether there are any unwanted side-effects.
