Hi I'm new to MatLab, and I have been trying to run the code inorder to create a PSD plot. However, I can't really figure out where or why it is falling down. Anyone have any ideas or know why? I have attached a picture of the code and the table in matlab...

The images are useless, but the error is clear, your variable tdata doesn't exist. I guess you need to change this line:
tdata = readtable(fname);

Warning: Column headers from the file were modified to make them valid MATLAB identifiers before creating variable names for the table.
The original column headers are saved in the VariableDescriptions property.
Set 'PreserveVariableNames' to true to use the original column headers as table variable names.

Unrecognized function or variable 'fs'.
Error in PSD1 (line 7)
dt=1/fs
Sorry for the delayed response.

clear
clc
fname='ADI 3DOF with mass2_0000.csv';
readtable(fname);
tdata=readtable(fname);
[nt,n]=size(tdata);
dt=1/fs
Td=nt*dt;
M=2;
nw=floor(nt/M);
for i=1:n
tdata1=reshape(tdata(1:nw*M,i),nw,M);
F=fft(tdata1)*sqrt(2*dt/nw);
SF=abs(F).^2;
S(:,i)=mean(SF,2);
end
df=1/(nw*dt);
ff=0:df:(nw-1)*df;
semilogy(ff,sqrt(S));
xlim([0.1,10])
ylim([0.1,0.00001])
xlabel('frequency(Hz)')
ylabel('PSD g/sqrt(Hz)')

I guess to give a bit of context, I have been using another code which can import the files I need can process them. However, the PSD plot is not the in the sytle we would like (in terms of axis) so I have been give this, which is the older code to try and made the PSD plot. The new code uses serveral different .m files and I am struggling to follow that code through. Hence why i have opted to try and modify this on.
