Asked by Kushan

% This is the code
AllNames= {'A.1';'A.1';'A.10';'A.10';'A.10';'A.10';'A.15';'A.15';'A.16'	;'A.17';'A.17';'A.17';'A.17';'A.17';'A.20A';'A.20A';'A.20A';'A.20A'};
B=[2;6;3;4;5;1;8;6;4;3;2;8;6;1;6;8;9;2];
ide_names=unique(AllNames(1:end,1)) ;
for i= 1:length(ide_names)
   index=find(AllNames(:,1)==ide_names(i,1));
   data.Name(1,i)=ide_names(i,1);
   data.Value=B(index,1);
end

% I want to create a new data struct(data) using the filtered Index from Cell Array A with values contain in B column vector. However, Once I ran the code below error is poping up.

_Undefined function 'eq' for input arguments of type 'cell'.

Error in a (line 6) index=find(AllNames(:,1)==ide_names(i,1));_

% could someone help me out, please

I have formatted your code. It is easy: mark it with the mouse, hit the "{} Code" button, care for a blank line before and after the code.

[a,c,c] = unique(AllNames); %[EDIT}
bb = accumarray(c,B,[],@(x){x});
data = struct('Name',a,'Value',bb);

Thanks a lot for your quick response. But below line is not working

[a,~,c] = unique(AllNames,'stable');

The below error massage is popping up

 [a,~,c] = unique(AllNames,'stable');
Error using cell/unique (line 28)
Unrecognized option.

Please help me out

You can change the line:

index=find(AllNames(:,1)==ide_names(i,1));  % ERROR

to

index = strcmp(AllNames(:,1), ide_names{i,1});

But using the outputs of unique is faster.
