Hi Everyone, I have got this error ''Brace indexing is not supported for variables of this type.'' Actually, I don't know what does mean?

Thanks for your help!


@saman zahiri rad: please show the complete error message. This means all of the red text.

Thanks for your reply. because of this :

Error in new_report_data (line 1212) label_0 = [GroupingValue_1{g},' =(',num2str(GroupingValue_unique),')'];

What the error message means is simple, you cannot use {} to index your GroupingValue_1 because for that type of variable, {} indexing has no meaning.

It looks like your code is expecting GroupingVariable to be a cell array. It is not. You'll have to find earlier in your code why that is not the case.


+1. I've removed my redundant answer.
