I use readtable to get access to excel data
some cells in the excell file contain no data and instead have a decimal point,
how can I replace these cells with NaN
regards

I use TT=readtable('Skutavr_tapNBTemp94-19_dag.xlsx');
then the data are entered as
'01.05.1994' 0.450000000000000 '1.03' '0.04' '11' '0' '6.6' '1.6' '0.065' '18'
'02.05.1994' 0.360000000000000 '0.59' '0.028' '7' '0.1' '7.9' '0.9' '0.046' '12'
'03.05.1994' 0.310000000000000 '0.34' '0.022' '5' '0' '7.3' '0.5' '0.035' '9'
'04.05.1994' 0.300000000000000 '0.33' '0.021' '5' '0' '9.5' '0.5' '0.034' '9'
because tfhere is a series with no data indicated as
'11.01.1996' 0.110000000000000 '0.04' '0.002' '0' '2.998' '1.1' '0.1' '0.004' '1'
'12.01.1996' 0.160000000000000 '.' '.' '.' '1.996' '0.9' '.' '.' '.'
'13.01.1996' 0.130000000000000 '.' '.' '.' '6.3' '0.9' '.' '.' '.'
'14.01.1996' 0.710000000000000 '.' '.' '.' '3.7' '0.9' '.' '.' '.'
'15.01.1996' 0.590000000000000 '.' '.' '.' '0.1' '0.9' '.' '.' '.'
'16.01.1996' 0.400000000000000 '.' '.' '.' '0' '-0.8' '.' '.' '.'

Hi,
Try using the following code:
[m,n] = size(Data) %gives number of rows and columns in 'Data'
for i = 1:m
for j = 1:n
if strcmp(Data{i,j},'.') %check if cell content is "."
Data{i,j} = NaN %replace with NaN
end
end
end
