An easy question but I can not find the solution. I have a number which is changing but i want to change it by myself.
How can I use that one in my folder name like this:
Thanks in advance
%% test
num = '0000060'
folder = 'C:\Users\dit\Documents\MATLAB\RawData\'+ num +'.csv';

Also read about strcat.
%% test
num = '0000060'
num = '0000060'
folder = ['C:\Users\dit\Documents\MATLAB\RawData\',num,'.csv']
folder = 'C:\Users\dit\Documents\MATLAB\RawData\0000060.csv'

num = '0000060'
folder = ['C:\Users\dit\Documents\MATLAB\RawData\', num, '.csv'];
% Or with strings instead of char vectors:
folder = "C:\Users\dit\Documents\MATLAB\RawData\" + num + ".csv";
% Or:
num = 60
folder = fullfile('C:\Users\dit\Documents\MATLAB\RawData\', ...
sprintf('%07d.csv', num))
