The error may be due to the Excel COM Automation server. Kill all running Excel processes from Windows Task Manager if any and try restarting the MATLAB and run the script again. If the issue still persists, then try using xlsread in ‘basic’ mode.
Refer to the below link to know more about ‘basic’ mode
As xlsread is not recommended to use in the latest versions of matlab, I would suggest you to use readtable instead.

The error still persists if I use basic mode.
I did not get this error in the 2019a version
My excel workbooks automatically open when i start my computer eventhough i have disabled all startup applications related to this.
I used readtable and my run time was 54 seconds which was about the same for xlsread?
I have attached a document in this comment which has multiple sheets and i need to store all that data in those sheets in an array so the code i am using is
fullFileName = 'Bunks11.xlsx';
[status, sheetNames] = xlsfinfo('Bunks11.xlsx');
numSheets = length(sheetNames);
for i=1:numSheets
t1{i,1} = readtable(fullFileName, 'Sheet', i);
So this takes 54 seconds and i want to read 200 files of this sort.
What is the best way and should i change my document format to something else?

Reading files in .csv format takes less time compared to reading files in .xlsx format .Even using the readtable in 'basic' mode reduces the time to some extent
