Try str(a) to find out the types of the columns. A stray typo could
make a representation of a number impossible to parse and make the
whole column textual. Use
which(is.na(as.numeric(as.character(a[,column_number])))) to find out
the row number where it happened (using extra as.character() here in
case the column is a factor).

Best regards,
