Hi! I am new to Mathematica 8 Home (Win 7 64) so I would be grateful for some help. I am trying to import a matrix symbolically from Excel 2010 so that I can manipulate it further on. I.e in Excel aa bb cc dd When I use the Import command I get {{{aa, bb},{cc, dd}}} This is not an matrix, it's something else (I don't know what). 1. Can I import the symbolic matrix in one operation? or 2. Can I transform the {{{...}}} to a {{...}}? TIA Matti
