Hello everyone,
I'm kind of newto matlab, and I have a problem in assigning and storing data to subfolders. I have one folder let say newfolder, and I created 6 subfolders based on the sizee of cell array. Now I want to save every elemnt of cell to subfolders in order but automatically. in the following is my code and I was wondering how to make use of for loop to make it automatic iteration. That is because it is going to be much more cell argumanet later for example 50 to 100.
here is the code
n = 1;
folder = 'C:\Users\HSH\Desktop\MATLABCOURSE\simulation_Data1';
fileName = fullfile(folder, sprintf('image_%d.png', n));
imwrite( adj_level2{1,n}, fileName);
folder = 'C:\Users\HSH\Desktop\MATLABCOURSE\simulation_Data2';
n1=n+1;
fileName = fullfile(folder, sprintf('image_%d.png', n1));
imwrite( adj_level2{1,n1}, fileName);
folder = 'C:\Users\HSH\Desktop\MATLABCOURSE\simulation_Data3';
n2=n1+1;
fileName = fullfile(folder, sprintf('image_%d.png', n2));
imwrite( adj_level2{1,n2}, fileName);
folder = 'C:\Users\HSH\Desktop\MATLABCOURSE\simulation_Data4';
n3=n2+1;
fileName = fullfile(folder, sprintf('image_%d.png', n3));
imwrite( adj_level2{1,n3}, fileName);
folder = 'C:\Users\HSH\Desktop\MATLABCOURSE\simulation_Data5';
n4=n3+1;
fileName = fullfile(folder, sprintf('image_%d.png', n4));
imwrite( adj_level2{1,n4}, fileName);
folder = 'C:\Users\HSH\Desktop\MATLABCOURSE\simulation_Data6';
n5=n4+1;
fileName = fullfile(folder, sprintf('image_%d.png', n5));
imwrite( adj_level2{1,n5}, fileName);
more accurately I dont know how to assign n to simulation_Data (name of subfolders). Any help would be deeply appreciated. Regards

As soon as you start numbering variable names like n1, n2, n3, ... then you have painted yourself into a corner and made your task more difficult.
This should get you started:
N = numel(adj_level2);
P = 'C:\Users\HSH\Desktop\MATLABCOURSE';
for k - 1:N
D = sprintf('simulation_Data%d',k);
F = sprintf('image_%d.png',k);
T = fullfile(P,D,F);
imwrite(adj_level2{1,k}, T);
end
