Hi, I have an excel with 2 columns, I am reading this file from .m file and through dlmwrite, writing it to the note pad but I want to skip the first element when ever it writes to the note pad with empty string or blank but not with the second element.
misvar = xlsread('mistry.xls'); m1=misvar(:,1); m1=m1'; dlmwrite('PRM.txt',m1,'delimiter','\t','-append','newline','pc');
output file is also attached to the above question, I wan to skip value 300(first element in the output) and leave it blank
