Excel Storing Numeric values as String when send via Email in SAP


I am using Function Module SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_ATT_SEND_API1 to send an EXCEL file via email. Everything is working fine but when I open the spreadsheet I'm unable to use EXCEL Autosum command on my numbers. It looks like my numbers may be in string format. I tried numerous things in EXCEL to convert the numbers to string with no luck. If I re-enter the number then the autosum works but I don't want to do that on a large report. Has anybody encountered this problem and be willing to give me some help on resolving this issue if it can be resolved?
