How to name an excel worksheet when using writetable

287 views (last 30 days)
Is there a simple way to name an the excel worksheet when using the writetable fnx? I am aware of the answer by Thomas Koelen on 8 May 2015 ( https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/215703-changing-the-name-of-the-sheet-in-excel ) but I am hoping there is a more direct and simple method, not involving ActiveX. Instead of an excel workbook with "Sheet1", "Sheet2", etc I want to give specific names to the worksheets.

The topic of the link is how to get rid of the default three sheets that are created, 'sheet1', 'sheet2', 'sheet3' . Deleting those sheets after creation is a valid approach to the question of how to end up with an Excel worksheet that does not have sheets with those names, which is what @Stephen was asking about.
