READEXCLE function, brings number in as not a scaler
Hi all I am using the readexcel function in mathcad prime 220.127.116.11 and to even read in a number it comes in as not a scaler. is there a set format in excel that i am missing as you can see the number below comes in in brackets  as an example. I have tried both .xlsx and .xlsm file types both give me the same.
note: the if function below is just an example to show I cant use the data brought in because of the  (brackets).
