I'm trying to create a GUI that will ask the user for a folder path and do some calculations based on it.
There's anywhere between 1-15 files per folder.
I'm stuck at printing the table output and having matlab ignore any temporary files that starts with ~$
filePattern = fullfile(myFolder, '*.xlsx');
theFiles = dir(filePattern);
for k=1: length(theFiles)
baseFileName= theFiles(k).name;
fullFileName=fullfile(myFolder, baseFileName);
Day{k}=extractBetween(fullFileName,"Day","_");
data1{k} =xlsread(theFiles(k), 2,'F10:end10');
TotalTemp{k}= sum(data1{k});
data2{k} =xlsread(theFiles(k), 3,'A10:end10');
TotalCost{k}= mean(data2{k});
T=table(Day, TotalTemp, TotalCost)
end

data1{k} =readMatrix(theFiles(k),'Sheet', 'B', 'Range','F10:end10');
theFiles(k) is the struct with the directory entry. You should be passing in the file name, which you stored in fullFileName
