I have created an output as a cell array and I want to add this cell array into a table in another gui.
The first part is the gui: A_GUI where cell array is created:
handles.Reihenfolge={'Puffer','Antibodies','Puffer','Regeneration','Puffer'};
...
varargout{6} = handles.Reihenfolge;
And the next part is the gui: B_GUI where the table locates:
[GUI_M,~,~,~,~,Reihenfolge] = A_GUI;
...
handles.MVP_Objs{5}=Reihenfolge;
...
MVP_data{12,4}=cell2str(handles.MVP_Objs{5}); % Debugging says it is wrong
set(handles.PropsObject,'Data',MVP_data); % Table with Tag PropsObject and has 12 rows and 4 columns
Debugging says it is wrong: Undefined function or variable
'cell2str'
Does somebody know how to fix it? I will be very appreciate that!

cell2str is not a function provided by Matlab.
There is more than 1 cell2str function on the file exchange, maybe your code depends on one of those files.
Also see Matlab's cellstr().
Lastly, if you describe the transformation you'd like to make with the cell2str function, we could probably figure out what you need to do without relying on a custom function.

Ok, glad to hear the problem is worked out. If you're using a switch/case to exchange a cell array for a string (or character) array you may run into problems.
