code to load my files from folder, add workspace variable and save to another folder

2 views (last 30 days)
I have a lot of .mat files wich I want to add a variable fs=128 to all of the one by one.
one way is to load ech other, add variable and save, which takes some days because of thousands data.
so I need a code (i.e. for loop) to load each one, add same variable and save it.
please help me.
thank you.

You don't need to load the file data, you can use save's '-append' option:
fs = 128;
for ... loop over all files, you need to finish this line yourself!
fnm = 'name_of_the_file.mat'; % change this depending on how you generate/index the filenames.

"it is not work"
You will need to actually loop over the files using one of the methods shown in the documentation:
For example, something like this:
fs = 128;
D = 'absolute or relative path to the folder where the files are saved'; % !!! YOU NEED TO CHANGE THIS !!!
S = dir(fullfile(D,'*.mat'));
for 1:numel(S)
fnm = fullfile(D,S(k).name);
