Can I use alphanumeric points for generating tables and/or reports?

Just curious, if I use an alpha point to store something akin to csv data can an excel report do anything with that and is it possible to somehow do any math on the data in there?
For example lets say I store something like
1,2,3,4  timestamp:xxx
4,3,2,1  timestamp:other_xxxCan any math be done on the individual "columns"?

Possibly if you split/explode the string (alphanumeric point value) by the separators into an array then convert each value to a numeric.... Then you can apply your mathematical analysis...
