    Default Excel to Revit via Dynamo Converts Numbers to Text

    I am trying to write a Dynamo script that will give me the total square footage of Areas grouped by certain parameters which I can then bring back into Revit to use in plumbing fixture calculations. I've managed to get the information written to an Excel file but when I try to import the values from Excel into Revit the square footage gets converted from a number to text. I keep seeing people commenting on how values imported from Excel can be set as numbers but nobody is providing instructions. Could someone please tell me how I can get numbers from my Excel spreadsheet to come into Revit as numbers?

    Are you able to share your Dynamo script with a sample Excel spreadsheet and Revit model?
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    Hopefully this all attached properly. I'm sure it's not self explanatory so hit me with your questions.
