I used the uigetfile function in order to select excel files. I also used the Multiselect option, however when I run the program and need to select the excel files, it is not possible to select two or more excel files. While it is possible to select only one file. How can I fix this problem?
used script:
[file_list,path_name] = uigetfile('.xlsx','MulitSelect','on');
if iscell(file_list) == 0
file_list = {file_list};
for i = 1:length(file_list)
filename = file_list{i};
data_in = xlsread([path_name, filename]);
x_rf_raw = data_in(:,9); %9 relative xrf data else 1
y_rf_raw = data_in(:,10); %10 relative yrf data else 2
x_s_raw = data_in(:,12); %12 relative xs data else 5
y_s_raw = data_in(:,13); %13 relative ys data else 6
% analysis ....

[file_list,path_name] = uigetfile('*.xlsx','MyDialog','MultiSelect','on');
You were missing the dialog name argument, so it was using 'MultiSelect' as the dialog name
