after doing some coding I have run a loop and saved values in cell R
for r=1:En
R{r} =E(Ec+Ea(r,:),:);
I have saved a variable of cell in a matfile named
where 'data_12x6' is fle name and 'R'is variable . now I want to call this variable in the below code
for r=1:numel(R)
I an trying this
for r=1:numel(R)
but it is giving an error that
Warning: Variable 'R' not found.
R =
struct with no fields.
Cell contents reference from a
non-cell array object.
how can I do this?

R = rand;
save('data_12x6', 'R');
>> Properties:
>> Properties.Source: 'D:\MFiles\data_12x6.mat'
>> Properties.Writable: false
>> R: [1x1 double]
Q = load('data_12x6')

Q = load('data_12x6', 'R')

Q = load('data_12x6', 'Miss')

This means, that your data_12x6 file does not contain the variable R. This can happen only, if it was not created by |save('data_12x6', 'R'). I guess, that the current folder has changed. Prefer to use absolute path names:
folder = tempdir; % Or where you want to store the files
save(fullfile(folder, 'data_12x6.mat'), 'R');
FileData = load(fullfile(folder, 'data_12x6.mat'));
R = FileData.R;
