VarDescription property

Class: dataset

Cell array of character vectors giving descriptions of variables in data set

The dataset data type might be removed in a future release. To work with heterogeneous data, use the MATLAB® table data type instead. See MATLAB table documentation for more information.


A cell array of character vectors giving the descriptions of the variables in the data set. This property may be empty, but if not empty, the number of character vectors must equal the number of variables. Any individual character vector may be empty for a variable that does not have a description defined. The default is an empty cell array.
