Hi, I'm dealing with a problem with the update function in Matlab.
selectquery_select = 'SELECT * FROM inputs WHERE i_read = 0';
data_select = select(conn,selectquery_select);
for j=1:size(data_select)
id_data = data_select(j,1);
id_data = string(id_data.(1));
time_data = data_select(j,4);
time_data = string(time_data.(1));
time_dataform = datetime(time_data,'InputFormat','yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss');
y0 = str2num(string(y0.(1)));
r0 = str2num(string(r0.(1)));
if id_data == "115"
update(conn,'inputs','i_read',1,'WHERE (ID_code = "115") AND WHERE (i_Time = time_data)');
Basically, I'm taking some value from the database when i_read is equal to 0 (i_read is a boolean variable in the database that should give 1 if the value is already processed and 0 if not). After a value is read, we want to change the i_read in the database from 0 to 1. We decide to use the update function, but this gave us the following error:
Error using database.odbc.connection/update
Too many input arguments.
Error in Patient_Identification (line 57)
update(conn,'inputs','i_read',1,'WHERE (ID_code = "112") AND WHERE (i_Time = ', time_data,')');
Someone is able to help us with this problem? Thank you.

Multiple whereclause does not need WHERE more than once.
So, the following would work. Changed from AND WHERE to AND.
update(conn,'inputs','i_read',1,'WHERE (ID_code = "115") AND (i_Time = time_data)');
If ID_code column is defined as INTEGER not CHAR nor VARCHAR, you don't need to use double quotation.
update(conn,'inputs','i_read',1,'WHERE (ID_code = 115) AND (i_Time = time_data)');
Please try both.
