I have a data (4259*1 cell ) ex: '9'
I want to remove the quotes mark
i try :
j=1;
for i=1:R
D(j)=t{i};
j=j+1;
end
w=D';
but its fake remove them as when i try to use the numbers or copy to excel the quotes appear again
how to remove the quotes or convert them to (4259*1 double)?

Show your code. It looks like you're trying to do something with xlswrite('vital signs.xlsx'.....) but we can't see it. What do you want? Do you want to write t, D, or w to a workbook file? And you want the workbook file to be numbers, not strings with quotes in front of them?

Hi amr,
You shouldn't be copying the values out of the variable editor like that.
Try using
xlswrite('output.xlsx',t);
This will directly write the values to excel for you without parentheses.
Hope this helps.

What happens if you try
tnum = str2num(cell2mat(t));
