Hello. I have a .txt file including numbers and texts separated by tabs. I have tried dlmread, csvread, etc but not still able to get the file content as a matrix. I do not know what is wrong. I appreciate your help.
SCRIPTfile = char(file);

Use readtable(); it will figure everything out automatically.

This is the script now. SCRIPTfile=strcat('C:\my_files\english experiment\'{1},'1,3','.txt'); if iscell(SCRIPTfile); SCRIPTfile = SCRIPTfile{1}; end fmts = repmat({'%f'}, 1, 11); fmts([2,4, 10]) = {'%[^\t]'}; fmts(11) = {'%*[^\n]'}; fmt = strjoin(fmts,''); fid = fopen(SCRIPTfile, 'rt'); datacell = textscan(fid, fmt, 'HeaderLines', 3, 'Delimiter', '\t'); fclose(fid);
Cell contents reference from a non-cell array object. Error in collectData (line 33) SCRIPTfile=strcat(SCRIPTroot{1},'1,3','.txt');
