How to fix index in a parfoor loop?

I have the following code and get indexing error
parfor dt=0:round(tmax/step)
fprintf(1,'\b\b\b\b\b%05.2f',dt);
for dm=0:dt
A(dm+1,dt+1) = f(dm,dt);
end
end
It does not make sense, for me, because each loop of the first for is stand alone in the variable dt. The size of A has been prefixed.
The error messages on the script are:
-The PARFOOR loop cannot run due to the way varaiable 'A' is used. (On line 1)
-Valid indices for 'A' are resticted in PARFOR loops. (On line 4)
Error when run:
Error: The variable A in a parfor cannot be classified. See Parallel for Loops in MATLAB, "Overview".

f is a function of two variables, input two variables and gives a scalar.

@Andreu Angles Castillo: please give the complete error message. This means all of the red text.

Hi Andreu,
agreed, it looks as if this case could be handled. But it is fairly easy to work around this by separating the inner loop from the parfor loop:
n = round(tmax/step) + 1;
parfor dt=0:round(tmax/step)
fprintf(1,'\b\b\b\b\b%05.2f',dt);
col = zeros(n, 1);
for dm=0:dt
col(dm+1) = f(dm, dt);
end
A(:, dt+1) = col;
end
