i have a problem- i have parameter in matlab called patients = 82x5 type char when each row is like 234t1(has both numbers and a letter)
i want to import it to excel so that each patient name will be in one cell and not 5..( a1 = 234t1, a2 = 234t2,...)

Great help! Thank you!
I was sending a date to Excel and, instead of writing the full date in a single Excel cell, it wrote each character in a separate cell. After using cellstr() the problem was solved!

Perhaps the following would work:
xlswrite('test.xls', cellstr(x))
Where "x" is a character array
