Hi,
I have a cell array "newdata" as shown below.
'01/01/2001' 0
'02/01/2001' 0
'03/01/2001' 0
'04/01/2001' 0
'05/01/2001' 14.1000000000000
'06/01/2001' 0
'07/01/2001' 0
I need to write this to a .csv file. So, I used the following code to do that.
csvwrite('110416.csv',newdata(:,1:2));
But, I got the following error.
Error using dlmwrite (line 112)
The input cell array cannot be converted to a matrix.
Error in csvwrite (line 42)
dlmwrite(filename, m, ',', r, c);
Can somebody suggest me a different way or how to correct this.?
Thanks in advance.

Damith - see Export Cell Array to Text File which uses fprintf to write each row of your cell array to file.

These days, use writecell()

Hi,
If you have EXCEL on your computer you can do the following instead
xlswrite('110416.xls',y);
Open 110416.xls and save it as a csv file.
