My numerical data keeps importing from MS Excel as 'char' type. I set the target type as number when I was importing it so I'm not sure why. I would like the data to be a column vector of numeric data. I've tried the str2num and str2double functions but I receive the below error message.

Error using str2num (line 35)
Input must be a character vector or string scalar.
Please could you help me find a way to either import my data as numeric type or if not, convert it once it's imported? Thank you.
