Is there any way to compare (greater than or less than) using tables? Or is there a way to compare using cells or as a character? The data being compared are numbers of various length.

Does the following help?
tf = strcmp(s1,s2) compares s1 and s2 and returns 1 (true) if the two are identical and 0 (false) otherwise. Text is considered identical if the size and content of each are the same. The return result tf is of data type logical. The input arguments can be any combination of string arrays, character vectors, and cell arrays of character vectors.

As stated in my original question I am comparing cells/characters/strings that are numbers

@Lexington Stoyell: only numeric values can be considered to have the property greater/less than. Convert the strings to numeric if you want to make this comparison.
