I am writing a function to import an Excel table. I am using 'opts' commands in order to add some versatility to the function. However, when I use readtable(... , opts),the variables for my imported table say 'Var1, Var2, Var3..'. I want my variable names to be the variables contained in the first row of my spreadsheet. How am I able to fix this? Obviously, I don't want to use opts.'VariableNames' and type out each variable that I have. That would take way too long.
P.S. this does not happen when I use juse readtable(..), it only occurs when I have the opts with it.

Try this or maybe you sharing your code might give a little more information.
[filename,pathname] = uigetfile('*.xlsx');
fullfilename = fullfile(pathname,filename);
A = importdata(fullfilename);
headers = A.textdata(1,end);

I'll try that! And here is what my code currently looks like.
function DataTable = ReadDataTable(filename)
opts = spreadsheetImportOptions('NumVariables',6,'PreserveVariableNames',true);
opts = setvaropts(opts,'FillValue','0');
DataTable = readtable(filename,opts,'ReadRowNames',true);

To read the tabular data while preserving variable names, set the 'PreserveVariableNames' parameter to true.
T_preserve = readtable('sampletable.txt','PreserveVariableNames',true)
You must be using MATLAB R2019b or newer to use this.
If you are using opts, try this.
opts = detectImportOptions;
opts.ReadVariableNames = true;
T_preserve = readtable('sampletable.txt',opts);

fillmissing can fill '' to a preferred text.

When you create import options from scratch, you need to specify all the information, including where the variablenames and data are.
function DataTable = ReadDataTable(filename)
opts = spreadsheetImportOptions('NumVariables',6);
opts = setvaropts(opts,'FillValue','0');
opts.PreserveVariableNames = true;
% You need to specify where to read the variable names from.
opts.VariableNameRange = 'B1';
opts.DataRange = 'B2';
opts.RowNamesRange = 'A2'
DataTable = readtable(filename,opts,'ReadVariableNames',true,'ReadRowNames',true);
