Thanks! it works
filename = 'Save_Polar.txt';
opt = detectImportOptions(filename);
data = readtable(filename, opt);
D=data(6:end,1:5);
Alpha =D{:,1};
CL =D{:,2};
CD =D{:,3};
CDp =D{:,4};
CM =D{:,5};

I’ve been having a lot of success lately in these types of problems by using extractFileText to read it all into a string, and then using a few manipulations to get to the data. Works well if you have a well-defined file format.
