Configuration panel shows TAG with quotation marks

I'm migrated database elements from one database to another, reason being is that for every attribute with a PI Point I added a child attribute called "TagName" in which the tag resides. Using PI builder I imported all Elements and modified cells using formulas and conditional formatting for many reasons, specially to suit the child attribute and duplicate tags. I did notice that i had to change the cell format to 'General' else the formula wouldn't work, nevertheless I managed and was happy with the data. I copy and special pasted all values into a new worksheet and formatted them to "Text" instead of "General". I published calling out my new template into my new database and everything looked great. I saw TAG values, but I did notice that when I click on an attribute with a PI point, calling out the child attribute "TagName", I see the configuration panel showing the Data Reference with the TAG having quotations. Is this ok? I get the PI TAG value, it just doesn't look right. Should I leave it as is, since it's working? or will I get errors else where and fix it? How? Is it because the child attribute is a string? see attached picture.
