No I would like to delete whole line so the output should look like this:

E={'| 00:15 | 1.21 | | 1.34 | 1.42 | 1.34 |

| 00:30 | 1.42 | | 1.76 | 1.34 | 1.45 |

| 00:45 | 1.23 | | 1.34 | 1.67 | 1.23 |'}

Ok

E={'| 00:00 | A| | A| A| A|'
'| 00:15 | 1.21 | | 1.34 | 1.42 | 1.34 |'
'| 00:30 | 1.42 | | 1.76 | 1.34 | 1.45 |'
'| 00:45 | 1.23 | | 1.34 | 1.67 | 1.23 |'}
idx=find(cell2mat(cellfun(@(x) ~any(strfind(x,'A|')),E,'un',0)))
out=E(idx)

E={'assA|stA|'}
E=E{1}
idx=regexp(E,'A|')
E(idx+1)=[]

Can you post a sample of your data?

Azzi Abdelmalek on 4 Feb 2013

%or

E={'assA|stA|';'azekaA|assaA|'}
for k=1:numel(E)
 a=E{k}
 idx=regexp(a,'A|')
 a(idx+1)=[]
 E{k}=a
end

Yes of course, sorry for that.

Example:

 E<1x1 cell>
 <4x1 cell>

| 00:00 | A| | A| A| A|

| 00:15 | 1.21 | | 1.34 | 1.42 | 1.34 |

| 00:30 | 1.42 | | 1.76 | 1.34 | 1.45 |

| 00:45 | 1.23 | | 1.34 | 1.67 | 1.23 |
