How to export summary results of the LinearModel as text to an excel file?

9 views (last 30 days)
I run the and create 'x' model object with lots of details in it. Now, typing x in a command window displays summary results of the model fit. I want that text summary displayed to be written in an excel file. I can work with the xlswrite, just cannot retrieve the summary text you see in a command window. How do I retrieve this text? I am copying an example of the summary text I am talking about. Thanks!

You've probably moved on or figured it out, but I had the same question and found that the following command works fine for storing the model mdl output in a char string:
T = evalc('disp(mdl)');
fid = fopen(fullfile(pName,fName),'wt'); fprintf(fid,'%s',mdlOutput); fclose(fid);
I found the answer from a post on the use of evalc. Sorry, I don't have the URL.

Another option is to convert the model to text, separate it by rows and convert that to a cell in order to write the results of the model in excel format:
text_model = evalc('disp(model)');
split_text_model = split(text_model,char(10));
