How to set 'PreserveVariableNames' to True while importing an Excel file into matlab?

I need it to keep the tables in the original format with spaces and non ASCII characters. I've read that this option is available in R2019b. But how to do it?

'PreserveVariableNames' Flag to preserve variable names, specified
as true or false. The default value is false. When
specified as true, MATLAB preserves variable names
that are not valid MATLAB identifiers such as variable
names that include spaces and non-ASCII characters.
