I want the file path for wtf to read: 'C:\Users\jessi\Desktop\HydrusMC\Simulations\MC_1\Obs_Node.out'
but with the code as scripted below renders:
'C:\Users\jessi\Desktop\HydrusMC\Simulations\MC_\1\Obs_Node.out'
How do I drop the \ between the MC_ and the 1? I couldn't find any advise from other posts on this aspect of fullfile.
wtf= fullfile('C:\\','Users','jessi','Desktop','HydrusMC','Simulations','MC_',num2str(i),'Obs_Node.out');

This has nothing to do with FULLFILE, you can simply concatenate them together:
['MC_',num2str(i)]
or use a string:
"MC_"+i

How about this?
wtf= fullfile('C:\\','Users','jessi','Desktop','HydrusMC','Simulations',("MC_"+num2str(1)),'Obs_Node.out')
wtf = "C:\\/Users/jessi/Desktop/HydrusMC/Simulations/MC_1/Obs_Node.out"

wtf= fullfile('C:\\','Users','jessi','Desktop','HydrusMC','Simulations',("MC_"+num2str(i)),'Obs_Node.out');
Node_conc = fopen('wtf','r'); % Open monte carlo output file in Path (i)
You should pass the content of "wtf" to the function fopen.
In this case, you are passing the character array of 'wtf'.
You can tell the difference by checking out these as follows:
'wtf'
ans = 'wtf'
wtf= fullfile('C:\\','Users','jessi','Desktop','HydrusMC','Simulations',("MC_"+num2str(i)),'Obs_Node.out')
wtf = "C:\\/Users/jessi/Desktop/HydrusMC/Simulations/MC_0+1i/Obs_Node.out"

Combine the 'MC_' and the i into a single argument.
Like this:
wtf= fullfile('C:\','Users','jessi','Desktop','HydrusMC','Simulations',['MC_' num2str(i)],'Obs_Node.out');
Or this:
wtf= fullfile('C:\','Users','jessi','Desktop','HydrusMC','Simulations',sprintf('MC_%d',i),'Obs_Node.out');

Thank you. These worked as well as the method suggested above.
