fullfile to contain multiply file extension

7 views (last 30 days)
How can I make that a fullfile contain multiply file extension (CSV, XLS, ODS) so my baseFiles have all the files with these extensions?
This code does not work:
fPattern = fullfile(handles.sourceFolder, '*.csv', '*.xls', '*.ods');
baseFiles = dir(fPattern)

filePatternCSV = fullfile(handles.sourceFolder, '*.csv');
csvFiles = dir(filePatternCSV);
filePatternXLS = fullfile(handles.sourceFolder, '*.xls');
xlsFiles = dir(filePatternXLS);
filePatternODS = fullfile(handles.sourceFolder, '*.ods');
odsFiles = dir(filePatternODS);
allFiles= vertcat(csvFiles,xlsFiles,odsFiles);
