@Ritesh, if you remove the first 2 header lines from the CSV it will work properly. There is probably an alternative to have MATLAB skip the first two lines but you would have to search the heirarcy of help for Create table from file - MATLAB readtable (mathworks.com) to see what options are needed to do so.

The files are formatted slightly differently, as these screenshots show:
The READTABLE() documentation gives some options that specify the header size or data location, e.g.:
opt = {'VariableNamesLine',3, 'NumHeaderLines',2};
t08 = readtable('KLOG0008.csv', opt{:})
t08 = 1440×9 table
