How to read from Excel columns into Signal analyzer app?

8 views (last 30 days)
Hi all
I read a two column signal ,time and displacement from Excel file and tried the Signal analyzer help page to convert it to something readable for the app. but
I was unsuccessfull in converting the Table time column into seconds. = mysig(:,1);
str.s1 = mysig(:,2);
T = struct2table(str); = seconds(;
TT = table2timetable(T,'RowTimes','st');
Input data must be a real, numeric array.
I should mention that the structure contains two tables, and when I create T, I have a Table of tables and this might have caused the error.
it could have been much better that the signal analyzer app was able to internalize the data type conversion and adapt any parameter that was to be read.

You must be leaving something out. If is numeric, then = seconds( creates a duration, and
TT = table2timetable(T,'RowTimes','st');
should be happy. So there must be something going on with = mysig(:,1);
str.s1 = mysig(:,2);
T = struct2table(str);
In any case, that seems round-about. I would think
T = array2table(mysig(:,1:2));
would do what you want, but even more directly
TT = timetable(seconds(mysig(:,1)),mysig(:,2))

Yes, and in fact it looks like maybe your entire table is made up of cell arrays, each cell containing a 1x1 table? You have gone astray when reading from your Excel file; just use readtimetable or readtable.
