Converting .CSV file element to double

I have imported a .csv file from excel into MATLAB all fine. However I can not manage to convert the elements into any numerical type as i need to do so for analysis. Any advice?

Dear Andrea,
May I see what is your code for importing your .csv file to the Matlab?
I suggest you to import your csv file using readtable:
T = readtable ('yourcsvfile.csv')
I think this will fix the problem?

If magic doesn't happen via readtable, attach the file; we have no idea what kind of input you're trying to convert to what...for starters, is it really a .csv file on the disk or are you trying to read an Excel file directly? Not totally clear...

You may try setting options for the readtable function as outlined in this doc:
