Hi,
I am converting mdf into mat, for the same I have created executable app. while executing following commands, the currently dictionary should be the folder having .mdf files . If I do that by puting cd command then it gives error while running the executable app.
What can be solution?
doscmd = ['"' converterfile '" -C:' convtype '.dll -IF:"' inifile '" "' files{f} '" ' tempconvfilename];
[status, result] = dos(doscmd);

Hi @Rik
Thanks for teh response
How to do that ? ( adding it to system call)
Its matlab cd now , currently it looks like below
cd(pathTargetFiles);
All files are there under 'pathTargetFiles' which I am converting by using this app.

You can use && to execute another command if the first one completes successfully:
doscmd = [...
'cd /d "' pathTargetFiles '" && ' ...
'"' converterfile '" -C:' convtype '.dll -IF:"' inifile '" "' files{f} '" ' tempconvfilename];
[status, result] = dos(doscmd);
The /d switch allows switching between partitions as well (in case either pathTargetFiles or your system happen to be on something other than C).
