"calculate the cumulative" what of the file?
Cumulative sum? cumsum.
Cumulative product? cumprod.
Cumulative minimum or maximum? cummin and cummax.

Can you show:
whos DATIECMWFgiornalieri
I'm assuming the comma inside the cumsum call is a typo, as otherwise that code would have thrown an error.
If I'm right and DATIECMWFgiornalieri is a table or timetable array, extract the contents of the fourth variable using curly braces instead of extracting the fourth variable as a sub-table using parentheses.
load patients
T = table(LastName, Height, Weight, Age);
head(T) % Show only the first few rows
ans = 8×4 table
LastName Height Weight Age ____________ ______ ______ ___ {'Smith' } 71 176 38 {'Johnson' } 69 163 43 {'Williams'} 64 131 38 {'Jones' } 67 133 40 {'Brown' } 64 119 49 {'Davis' } 68 142 46 {'Miller' } 64 142 33 {'Wilson' } 68 180 40
C1 = cumsum(T{:, 4}) % Cumulative sum of the Age variable
C1 = 100×1
38 81 119 159 208 254 287 327 355 386
C2 = cumsum(T(:, 4)) % Will error as cumsum is not defined for table arrays
Error using cumsum
Invalid data type. First input argument must be numeric or logical.
