Hi, I have a table of data. One of these columns includes a column which I have labelled 'Participant Data'
I want to search 'Participant Data' for a particular string and return all the index of this table when it does pop up.
Additionally if I have 2 arrays of indices, how to return just the numbers that are in both indices?
Thanks!

Searching a table for a string can done using find and strcmp. A combination of both function can be used to search a string:
find(strcmp('YourString',Table));
Refer the following link for model details.
