Why am I unable to open .csv file with the readmatrix function?

16 views (last 30 days)
The file I am trying to import in matlab is CSV (comma delimited).
So each cell in the excel file is like:
0.000 0.000 0.000 0.000 0.000 0.000 0.000 0.000 0.000 0.000 3.000
So 11 values with space in between.
Initially using matlab 2020a, readmatrix could read each value separately and could import it without any issues as a 1 x 11 double.
But now I am not able to anymore. It would just read it as 1x1 double with the value as NaN.
Any suggestions as to how I can read my excel file now?

workaround suggestions
faster with readcell vs importdata
>> tic;
out2 = str2double(split(readcell('t4md6p1 - partial file.csv')));
Elapsed time is 10.480521 seconds.
>> tic;
out2 = str2double(split(importdata('t4md6p1 - partial file.csv')));
Elapsed time is 34.013224 seconds.
