Question about load .mat files

I have a group of .mat files, which have continuous number of name, i.e. from W_star_1.mat to W_star_300.mat. Could I write a code using "for i=1:300" loop to load all of them instead of loading them one by one? Thank you very much.

If you are certain that there is no overlap in variables in all those files, then you can use
for i = 1:300
but if some of the variables overlap, you'll need to load them into separate structures, to ensure that later loads don't overwrite earlier ones.
for i = 1:300
S{i} = load(['W_star_',num2str(i),'.mat'])
Then you'll need to extract the variables from the structures.

First you can save them when all of them are on the workspace
save(['name', '.mat']);
then use
load(['name', '.mat']);
