Hi, I would appreciate if someone could assist with the following.  On the Numbers application on my Ipad, the 'VALUE' function doesn't seem to work correctly on the string/text which I want to convert to a value.  It gives me an error (in my example: 'VALUE requires a string specifying a number, but found "-14308.65" instead.'

The exact same document (if converted from Numbers to excel), displays the converted string/text correctly in MS Excel as a value though.
