i have a data base with name gender and age not necessarily in the same order, some data base is gender name age. for example
'name' 'gender' 'age'
'mary' 'f' 25
'john' 'm' 35
'anna' 'f' 30
'paul' 'm' 22
'elaina' 'f' 38
what changes is required in the code so that i can only display femate above age of 30 and less that 40
function [patient] = filterpatients_cell(data)
colage = data(strcmp(data(1,:),'age'),1);
if colage == 30 && colage <= 40
col = strcmp(data(1,:),'gender');
out = data(strcmp(data(:,col),'f'),1);
end
patient = out;

A table would be good to deal with.
name = {'mary','john','anna','paul','elaina'}' ;
gender = {'f', 'm', 'f', 'm', 'f'}' ;
age = [25, 35, 30, 22, 38]' ;
T = table(name,gender,age)
T = 5×3 table
name gender age __________ ______ ___ {'mary' } {'f'} 25 {'john' } {'m'} 35 {'anna' } {'f'} 30 {'paul' } {'m'} 22 {'elaina'} {'f'} 38
% Get females
idx = strcmp(T.gender,'f') ;
% GEt age
T1 = T(idx,:) ;
idx = T1.age >= 30 & T1.age <= 40 ;
T2 = T1(idx,:)
T2 = 2×3 table
name gender age __________ ______ ___ {'anna' } {'f'} 30 {'elaina'} {'f'} 38

Can you explain how it is possible using cell array?
