I have the Img names "101_1",
and I want to extract the substring
included between the underscore '_'.
Here I used,
file_a = extractAfter(char(file_a), 0, strfind(char(file_a), '_')-2);
but it produces error,
I want as output 102_1 and so on.
How can I do this? thanks

You do not indicate what the error is .I suspect you are using r2016a or earlier before extractAfter existed

file_a = regexprep(file_a, '\..*$', '');
This will work whether file_a is a cell array of character vectors or a single character vector -- in other words it can be applied to the complete list of filenames all at the same time.
