Face area magnitude inconsistency when exporting

i'm facing a truly embarassing problem when exporting solution data from fluent. I need face area magnitude of every face on an existing mesh boundary.
Having properly read the values in matlab, their sum do not coincide with the whole area value of the same mesh boundary (using report>area function in fluent). Moreover, when I'm summing up the same faces in fluent (report>sum>mesh>face area magnitude) i get the correct value that coincide with report>area!
So, where's the inconsistency? Am I missing something? Could you suggest me another way to obtain the face area magnitude values I need?
As you could easily guess, i need this to prepare some custom post-processing analysis involving area weighted averages. Being this vital for my work, I thank in advance everyone who helps me.
