User defined function in for loop

I have created a loop to loop through a series of csv files and perform functions. The code I wrote is below:
file=('list of my files')
for i = 1:length(file)
csv = readtable(file{i});
Date=csv{1,2}
D(i,:)=Date %% I get a cell array with the dates from each file
end
The code that I wrote works but I need to transform it into a user-defined function. I have tried creating the function below. However, when I call the function I do not get the required results. Am I creating the function incorrectly?
function [csv,D] = read_function(i,file,a,b);
csv = readtable(file{i});
Date=csv{a,b};
D(i,:)=Date
end
%%% In a new window I call the function like this
file=('list of my files')
for i = 1:length(file)
a=1;
b=2;
[csv,D] = read_function(i,file,a,b);
end

Thank you very much. Would I add a line to the function which states csv=table2array(csv) ?
It still seems to give problems when i try that.
