When a file name is 'examine.txt' at location c:\users\matlab, can I align this file on a single variable 'var' by
var= 'C:\Users\matlab\examine.txt';?

I would use the readmatrix or readtable function.
I'd recommend taking a little time to go through MATLAB Onramp. It will introduce you to the fundamentals of using MATLAB for free. The entire course should take around 2 hours, but you can also go through individual chapters as needed. For example, Ch 10 covers importing data.
