How to save the variable from the workspace into csv or excel file

178 views (last 30 days)
Hi,
I am using the code below to save one of the variable from the workspace into the
excel file but struggling to save it, what it is doing is saving some gibrish into excel rather then the data.
Code:
close all; clear all; clc;
folder = fullfile('D:','Velocity_Analysis','paraViewpractise');
files = dir( fullfile(folder, '*.csv') );
for ii = 1:length(files)
data = readmatrix(fullfile(files(ii).folder,files(ii).name), 'NumHeaderLines', 1)
res(:,ii)= data(:,3);
end
filename='workspace_variable.xls';
save(filename,'res');
winopen('workspace_variable.xls');

save() is for saving in a .mat file. You need writematrix() for xls
filename='workspace_variable.xls';
writematrix(res, filename);
For releases older than R2019a, use xlswrite().

You may consider attaching your complete code including the line writematrix. Maybe it will give some hints of the issue.
