I used the xlswrite1 code (proposed by Matt, http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/10465-xlswrite1) to write many similar matrix into one excel file with various Sheets. It worked well, so fast. However, reading this excel file using the xlsread1 code will take much time. For example, 600 Sheets will take 5 mins. Is it normal?

Excel = actxserver('Excel.Application');
workBook = Excel.Workbooks.Open('filename.xls');
workSheets = Excel.Sheets;
for i = 1:workSheets.Count
sheet = get(workSheets,'item',i);
sheetName{i} = sheet.Name;

I think there is no other method which executes faster than activex.
