I am having difficulty reading a specific csv file into an array (see attached). I have been trying to use csvread and readtable with no success. Any suggestions?

File should be attached here. Not sure why it didn't attach to the original question

That file appears to be not a simple ascii text file. Is this an encoding problem? readtable does have a parameter to control that.

You can try using the Import Tool in MATLAB.
Testing it on the data provided, if the script is generated from the import tool and then executed, the data is imported correctly.
I believe it uses 'textscan' under the hood, with certain character encodings.
Hope this helps.
