Hello! I have a 120x2 matrix and would need to match for every row, if there is a common number that appears in both columns. Eventually, I want my results to show the common number(s) that appears in every row (if any) in a cell. Right now, the if loop accounts for all the numbers in the box i.e for the second row, it is comparing [1;2;3;6;8;9] and [9], and the if loop will give me a over =0. However, 9 is a common number in both columns, and I want it to be reflected. How may I code for this?
Thank you! :) attached Spfcfef for ease too
for n = 1:120
if cell2mat(Spfcfef(n,1)) == cell2mat(Spfcfef(n,2))
over = 1
over = 0

The first column is an array and you are checking if an element is present in it for such cases you need to use ismember function.
Hope this helps!
