load multiple .mat files

13 views (last 30 days)
hi everyone,
I have a question.
I am analysing some data which have multiple subjects. Information about every subject is stored in the MATLAB structure (.mat file)
For Example:
U1_Acc_TimeD_FreqD_FDay.mat
U2_Acc_TimeD_FreqD_FDay.mat
U1_Acc_TimeD_FreqD_FDay.mat
and so on...
I would like to create for loop which in every iteration load new data_number.mat file.
I'd like in every iteration to load next .mat file? Particularly, I don't know how to address number part of filename using load function.
I tried this code and seems it's overwritten the data!
clear;
for nc = 1:36
load(['U', num2str(nc,'%2d'), '_Acc_TimeD_FreqD_FDay.mat']);
end
Thank you

load(['U_', num2str(nc,'%02d'), 'Acc_TimeD_FreqD_FDay.mat']);
or
load( sprintf('U_%02dAcc_TimeD_FreqD_FDay.mat', nc) );
