Navigating CONDITION obstacles

Good day,
I am busy trying a flow that will create SharePoint list items from a excel table; about 80,000 items. 
The flow failed because some SharePoint list columns expect to see a value from the table but the value from the cell in the table might be blank. There are three columns in the table that is affected.

Condition statements in the flow might take much longer as I have to check for all possible conditions:
If Cell A, B and C are blank, run this.
If Cell A is blank but B and C are not, run this.
if Cell B is blank but A and C are not, run this.
Etc.

How can I make this easy?
Would it help if I change the list column format to single line of text, run the flow, and then change the list column format back to number?

@MJGreyling Second option is good to use, if you're sure you will be only putting number in that column.
