How to rectify errors while using 'xlswrite' function?

1 view (last 30 days)
Hello everyone,
I am using 'xlswrite' function for writing data to an excel-sheet. My code is something like this -
values = {1, 2, 3 ; 4, 5, 'x' ; 7, 8, 9};
headers = {'First', 'Second', 'Third'};
xlswrite('myExample.xls', [headers; values]);
I am getting following error message:
"Error using xlswrite (line 220)
Invoke Error, Dispatch Exception:
Source: Microsoft Office Excel
Description: 'C:\Users\Admin\Documents\MATLAB\myExample.xls' could not be
found. Check the spelling of the file name, and verify that the file
location is correct.
If you are trying to open the file from your list of most recently used
files, make sure that the file has not been renamed, moved, or deleted.

Now, kindly suggest how to rectify above mentioned error. Thanks!

Thanks for reply! I followed as per your suggestions but still facing the same problem. I guess its something related to invoking the Excel application in activex mode. However I am unable to figure out the exact cause of the problem. Also I would like to mention here that the same code is working perfectly on other PC without any issue at all..

This error is generated directly by Excel upon opening the file from MATLAB. You can find more information about this issue on Microsoft's website:
