Hi. I have a strcuture array with 10 fields. How can, I find the minumum and maximum values of a particular field f1? I tried uisng min and max commands but, they are giving wrong results.
For example,
The name of the structure array is "Test" (1 x 5000) and the field name is "growth". I want the minimum and maximum of the whole field growth.
Test(1).growth=[1 2 3 4 5 5 6 7 8 9];
Test(2).growth=[10 20 40 67];
..... so on.
I want the maximum and the minimum of the field "growth".

Hi. Thanks for your reply. The name of the structure is "Test" and the field name is "growth". I tried your code as follows: arrayfun(@(s) min(Test.growth), s)
It is giving the following error:
Error using min
Too many input arguments.
Error in @(s)min(Test.growth)
Did, I make any mistake in the syntax?

I recommend you to post your data the next time asking question. You'll save time and us too.
arrayfun(@(s) min(s.growth), Test)
