Is there a way to input the default value in an edit box of a GUI as an input from a file? I have a file with data (file attached)
I want to input the values row by row into edit boxes of a GUI. ex: EditBox1 as: H V1 V2 RHO Edit2 as:2 500 205. 2.78 Edit3 as:4 600 288. 3.0 I can't figure out how to set default of a edit box as input from a file. Can anybody please help me with it? Thanks.

Import the file in the OpeningFcn of the GUI (if you have created it by GUIDE). Then you can populate the edit boxes with the values, which appear initially.
If you attach the file, does it mean that the import of the file is a part of the problem? If so, please explain this explicitely.

Why do you set the ApplicationData of the root object? Which callback do you mean here? I'd suggest:
function OpeningFcn(...)
A = importdata(file);
set(handles.edit1, 'String', A.colheaders);
...
If there is a need to store the data, store them locally:
FigH = ancestor(hObject, 'figure');
setappdata(FigH, 'FileData', A); % Or getappdata
