Prevent overwriting within a for loop in 3D-motion tracking

1 view (last 30 days)
Hi all,
a analyse 3-D motion data in humans. I want to import multiple .xlsx files at once and save the output in one table. So far, in my for loop matlab overwrites the data so that I have only the results in my table with the last iteration (n=21).
Next steps after save all files in one table are to select relevant data and calculate maximum and mean data.
I tried a lot but can't find a solution.
Regards and thank you very much for yout help.
clc; clearvars; close all
data = dir ("*.xlsx") ;
N = length (data) ;
for i = 1:N
thisFile = data(i).name;
T = readtable (thisFile);

Dear Sean,
I tried indexing before. Matlab said: "Subscripting into a table using one subscript (as in (t (i)) is not supported. ...
It may be a problem that "thisFile" is a char?
Regards, Jonas
T(i) = readtable (thisFile);

You may just want
T = table();
for ...
T = [T; readtable (thisFile)];

I do: remove the space that I unintentionally put between "readtable" and (thisFile). Oops! Sorry about that!
