I have the following cell structure:
1x30 double
1x23 double
1x23 double
1x23 double
1x23 double
1x23 double
1x23 double
1x25 double
1x35 double
I want to find whether a number is present in one of these and want to know the index of that. So for instance the number 5 is present in double 1, 5 and 7, so the output should be [1 5 7]. Can this be done?

Off the top of my head, something like this may work:
find( cellfun( @(x) any( find( x == 5 ) ), myCell, 'UniformOutput', false ) )
where myCell is your cell array.
At least it may give you ideas to get to the right solution, though I'm sure someone else will quickly come along with a correct or better solution if this is not it!

v=cellfun(@(x) any( x == 5 ), yourcell);
Wanted = find(v) % Adam was almost right , but a minute tweak
