Hello, Is it possible to include variable and text in excel sheet name when we writing the result to that excel sheet using xlswrite command.
I know how to include variable only by using num2str(variable(j)).
I have tried ['Classic: ', num2str(variable(j)),'deg']but error message says :
Error using xlswrite (line 219)
The specified data range is invalid or too large to write to the specified file format. Try writing to an XLSX file and use Excel A1 notation for the range argument, for example, ‘A1:D4’.
Appreciate any suggestion Aziz
Yes, use sprintf() to create a sheet name from your variables:
sheetName = sprintf('%s %d', yourString, yourInteger);
cellRef = 'D3'; % Whatever
xlswrite(filename, yourData, sheetName, cellRef);
You're welcome, and thanks for Accepting the answer. In my code yourString was meant to be your variable name that contains the string. If you want it to be the actual string -- what is called a "string literal" -- then, yes, you would have to enclose it in single quotes.
