In the following hierarchy structure of the cell array 'results', assuming that this is a huge set of data tables where we don't know where the table we want for a specific date is located. How can I retrive a certain table from the cell array 'results' that is shown below, using the values in the first column (data file name) of 'results' and the value of the 'Date' variable in the desired table? any idea...
for example:
the cell array results would look like this:
and when expanding a cell from the second column it would look like the image below, where these are the tables that I would like to retrive based on the 'Date' variable (8th column) inside them
and the tables are having the following formats

In general, keeping data together makes it easier to work with.
Although you have spent considerable effort splitting your data up into lots of separate tables, that rather defeats the purpose of using tables (which ultimately is to efficiently group and process data within one array). Most likely this task would be simpler if you just had one table, not hundreds of tables nested in a cell array.

thanks for your commnet, I agree with you, but this is for the purpose of sorting some data out and it will later on be applied to a huge number of data files. there might be a better way of implementing such thing for sure, but I am a begginer here and I am trying to learn.

The answer is actually written on your tabs.
To view the whole table in the last screenshot, type the following:
results{1,2}{1}

Alternatively, you could try this if your Date is in datetime format within your table:
Array_of_Tables(i,:) = any(ismember(str2num(char(results{1,2}{i}.Date)),196612010520))

NEver used table but i think this will work:
X = results{1,2}{1,1};
MyDates = X.Date;
Might even work directly:
MyDates = results{1,2}{1,1}.Date

thank you for your reply, but the aim is to retrieve the whole table given a specific Date value, not the Date values. and assuming that this is a huge set of data where we don't know where the table we want for a specific date is located.

In that case look at the function: find
Im sure there are many posts about "find a specific value in a matrix"
