For the above result i want to find the maximum of output1. I tried with the command iwant=max(cell2mat(output1(:))) but i am getting error stating Cell contents reference from a non-cell array object.Could anyone help me to solve the issue.

can you explain clearly, whether the outputs are cell or array. can you give me the piece of code

code:
iwant = 1.1093e+08
iwant(:,:,1) = 0
iwant(:,:,2) = 1.4517e+08
iwant(:,:,1) = 0
iwant(:,:,2) = 0
iwant(:,:,3) = 1.3899e+08
iwant(:,:,1) = 0
iwant(:,:,2) = 0
iwant(:,:,3) = 0
iwant(:,:,4) = 1.9546e+08
iwant(:,:,1) = 0
iwant(:,:,2) = 0
iwant(:,:,3) = 0
iwant(:,:,4) = 0
iwant(:,:,5) = 1.2051e+08
iwant(:,:,1) = 0
iwant(:,:,2) = 0
iwant(:,:,3) = 0
iwant(:,:,4) = 0
iwant(:,:,5) = 0
iwant(:,:,6) = 1.3012e+08
iwant1=max(iwant(:,:,:))
I want to have the value as 1.9546e+08.but it is considering only the last one.

since you are overwriting the values, the output is not coming,, try the following
iwant1 = 1.1093e+08;
iwant2(:,:,1) = 0;
iwant2(:,:,2) = 1.4517e+08;
iwant3(:,:,1) = 0;
iwant3(:,:,2) = 0;
iwant3(:,:,3) = 1.3899e+08;
iwant4(:,:,1) = 0;
iwant4(:,:,2) = 0;
iwant4(:,:,3) = 0;
iwant4(:,:,4) = 1.9546e+08;
iwant5(:,:,1) = 0;
iwant5(:,:,2) = 0;
iwant5(:,:,3) = 0;
iwant5(:,:,4) = 0;
iwant5(:,:,5) = 1.2051e+08;
iwant6(:,:,1) = 0;
iwant6(:,:,2) = 0;
iwant6(:,:,3) = 0;
iwant6(:,:,4) = 0;
iwant6(:,:,5) = 0;
iwant6(:,:,6) = 1.3012e+08;
output1=[iwant1(:);iwant2(:);iwant3(:);iwant4(:);iwant5(:);iwant6(:)];
Max_output1=max(output1)

You are not storing all of those values in output1. Your output1 is just a regular numeric array. It is possible that you are storing them somewhere else in a cell array.
