MuPAD verion 4 Problem with Newton Poly Interpolation

I set up a polynomial in T to perform Newton Interpolation

P := (N,T) -> sum(a[M]*product((T-t[k-1]),k=1..M),M=0..N);

Check is correct for 4 terms


Get the table of data


Check the polynomial for 4 terms now


It is a mess. MuPAD substitutes the whole table each time instead of entries from the table.

I am using a table because the index can start at 0 and the formula then matches the one in the text.

Is there a workaround?
