I want to take my Workspace variables and download them as an Excel file. Here's how I am doing it
% Clean your workspace
clear
close
clc
% Create variables
a = "Hello World";
b = "Today is Friday";
c = "I am happy";
% Define to filenames
varsFile = "workspace.csv";
% Convert variables to tables
dataTable = table(a, b, c);
% Write the tables to their respective files
writetable(dataTable, varsFile);
But this is easy if you have a few variables like the example I have above. What if I have many many variables. How can I do the task without calling table() and having to code every variable name? Suppose these are my variables:
a="a1"
b="a2"
c="a3"
d="a4"
e="a5"
f="a6"
g="a7"
h="a8"
i="a9"
j="a10"
k="a11"
l="a12"
m="a13"
n="a14"
o="a15"
p="a16"
q="a17"
r="a18"
s="a19"
t="a20"
u="a21"
v="a22"
w="a23"
x="a24"
y="a25"
z="a26"
As you can see, calling every variable is impratical. By the way, all my variables are strings.
