Find text in a variable which contains texts and numbers

5 views (last 30 days)
I read a csv file and store the data in a variable with the readtable command. This variable contains both text and numbers. How I could find the row of specific text?

You could use ismember on the column of text, something like
loc = ismember(yourTable(:, 3), 'sometext');
if your text is in column 3. It will return the row the search text is in.
