Farshid - try using cellfun. It seems that the pn is a cell array with 38 elements and each element is a 8x1 char array. You haven't mentioned if each of the 8 characters is a single number or if all 8 combine to one (I'll assume the latter).
>> myData = load('example.mat');
>> numericData = cellfun(@(x)str2double(x'),;

Farshid - it probably would have been easier if you had just asked for that format in the first place.
myData = load('example.mat');
myOutputData = nan(2,length(;
for k = 1:length(
data ={k};
myOutputData(1,k) = str2double(data(:,1)');
if size(data,2) == 2
myOutputData(2,k) = str2double(data(:,2)');
