Is there any function in Matlab that can serve as "VLOOKUP" of Excel?

75 views (last 30 days)
I am making a model that gives me this information:
aux2 =
7×2 cell array
{'100'} {[8.7856e+08]}
{'010'} {[7.8487e+09]}
{'110'} {[8.7272e+09]}
{'001'} {[5.4068e+09]}
{'101'} {[6.2854e+09]}
{'011'} {[1.3361e+10]}
{'111'} {[1.4243e+10]}
The problem I have is that I need these results to have the following order (just look at column 1 to understand the order):
final1 =
7×1 cell array
I think that a solution could be something like what the Excel function "VLOOKUP" does, the logic of this is that it looks for each value of column 1 of the aux2 array in column 1 of the final array1 and assigns the value of column 2 of the aux2 array in the order of column 1 of the final array1.
This is an idea but if you can think of a better way, I would appreciate any help, thanks!

Many Thanks! This function also works for matching data from multiple columns.
