I have a 1x48 cell where each cell is a Ax1 cell with characters such as (N, (V etc. When I convert to double, I get double('(N')) = [40,78].
How can I for (N and all other characters (they can have multiple letters such as (PVC ) convert it to double and this double value should be one value. What I mean with one value is instead of [40,78], it should end as 4078 for instance. I have attached the cell as a mat file (comments2.mat).

This should work for you.
A=[40 78];
A=str2num(A(A~=' '));
