Ahmed - can you post some of your code? It seems as if you are using your GUI to write and read from an Excel spreadsheet. If that is the case and you know how to write to the file, then is it the reading from file that is causing a problem? Suppose the user has entered a number into the edit1 text control and pressed a button whose callback is
function pushbutton1_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
% read from the Excel file
[~,~,rawData] = xlsread(handles.excelFileName);
% get the value from edit1
id = str2num(char(get(handles.edit1,'String')));
% get the index of id in the first column of rawData
rowIndex = find(rawData(:,1) == id);
if ~isempty(rowIndex)
% get the name
userName = rawData(rowIndex,2);
% set the name
The above is untested, but I think that you can use it for your purposes. I've made some assumptions concerning the names of your controls, the name of the Excel file (presumably stored as a string within the handles structure), and the fact that the data is stored as two columns.
