Rerun script with different table input

3 views (last 30 days)
Hey,
I wrote quite a long script, that uses table data, like so:
Location = table1.Location;
Is there a way to replace "table1" in all lines of the script and replace it e.g. with table2? To get:
Location = table2.Location;
Additionally I'm relying on tablesizes in my script (probably not a good way to do that) but I manually entered e.g.:
sh(1:2734) = sh;
where (1:2734) represents the table size. Is there a way to have the following?
sh("tablesize") = sh
Thanks for your help!

You should always attempt to index. Put all your tables into a single cell array.
t{1}=table1;
t{2}=table2;
%then index into t
n=2;
Location=t{n}.Location;
sh(size(t{n}))=sh;%not sure what you are using this for, but size() gives the size of the table
