I need help about a code on how to check if words like "M3 TRIPPED" is present in the sentence of the table cells, and output a matrix indicating the row number and column where this phrase is present.
Thank you.

Attach your cell array in a .mat file if you need more help.

Like this?
% A sample data
T = cell2table({...
'M3 TRIPPED xyz','abc','pqr';...
'def','M3 TRIPPED 123','ghi'});
% Find row and column containing 'M3 TRIPPED'
idx = contains(T{:,:},'M3 TRIPPED');
[row,col] = find(idx);
