I suspect that I can actually read the log file data directly into Matlab without conversion. It is just a comma separated variable format(.csv), I believe, and I think it should be accessible to some Matlab input routine.

However,I dont not know the matlab input routine; It would be very helpful if someone can enlighten me on the input routine

thanks in advance, Cordelle

This is not enough information to give a more explicit answer than:

- Import the file by e.g.
`importdata`or`fopen`/`fscanf`. - Export the data by
`xlswrite`.

I suggest to add mire details, e.g. the file's contents by editing the original question (not as comment or answer).

When I imported the file using importdata this occured:

data: 3

textdata: {863x4 cell}

what does this mean? and how can I convert the imported file into an excel file?

That means its a cell in a structure.

You can access data from structures:

http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/matlab_prog/access-data-in-a-structure-array.html

and use

http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/xlswrite.html

If you need editing in between you should do that.

If you are unfamiliar with cell and structures at all in MATLAB, I point you to

Error using load

Number of columns on line 3 of ASCII file

\\dc1nas\Projects-AB\AS\Jobs\Jobs-2012\1538_KSAT_SG24\40_Testin\03_Test_Report\SAT\SAT_Demo_Passes\passReport.TERRA_2013_107_165606

must be the same as previous lines.

How can i correct this issue? (I used the "Load" input routine)

Since you are new to MATLAB, try using this GUI
