writecell( [.... -inf inf ...] gives 65535 and 65535 in Excel both for -inf and +inf

table2cell(ToperLow)
ans =
1×5 cell array
{[650]} {[-Inf]} {[-Inf]} {[-Inf]} {[500]}
>> xx = table2cell(ToperLow)
xx =
1×5 cell array
{[650]} {[-Inf]} {[-Inf]} {[-Inf]} {[500]}
writecell( xx, 'test.xls', 'Sheet', 'sheet1', 'UseExcel', false )
Resulting cells in Excel is +65535 instead of - 65535???
650 65535 65535 65535 500

For some purposes, maybe...a string in the column instead of numeric may break import and return as cellstr() though...not convenient.

Hi,
I believe this is how Excel treats Inf and -Inf in a cell, as @Binbin Qi mentioned one workaround would be to write them as strings as mentioned in the following post:
Also the documentation of xlswrite and writetable mention regarding this.
Hope this Helps!
