Assigning Cell Arrays to Nested Structures within Structure array with Same Dimensions (Error: "Scalar structure required for this assignment")

I currently have a structure containing a 2x1 structure array each containing a structure with one field:
struct.structArr(:).field1.field1_1
I have tried to assing values from a cellfun to 'field1_1' using the following code:
[struct.structArr.field1.field1_1] = outputOfCefllfun{:};
The 'structArr' is a 2x1 matrix of structures and the output of the cellfun is a 2x1 cell array each containing a matrix of doubles.
I receive the following error:
Scalar structure required for this assignment.
Is there any way of assigning these values without having to do another cellfun?
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

I don't know how your struct is initialized. It should work.
%initialize
outputOfCefllfun{1,1}=magic(5);
outputOfCefllfun{2,1}=magic(5);
struct.structArr(1,1).field1=[];
struct.structArr(2,1).field1=[];
%assign
[struct.structArr.field1] = outputOfCefllfun{:};

Hey Xi,
Thanks for the reply. I've revised my question to fit the exact problem I was having. I am actually looking to assign the output values from the cellfun to a field in a further nested structure within each structure of the structArr. Sorry for the confusion. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Further nested structure is getting more complicated, but you can always use "for loop" to assign the values.
for i=1:2
struct.structArr(i).field1.field1_1=outputOfCellfun{i};
end
