Unable to read an imported CSV
53 views (last 30 days)
I'm trying to upload and open/read a CSV file. I used the "import data" tab on the Home bar to upload the file, then I tried to use the data using various commands (ie. m = readtable('filename.csv') and m = csvread('filename.csv')) but I get the error message
"Unable to find or open the file. Check the path or filename or file permission" or "file not found"
The name is definitely correct. I'm not sure how to check the path or permission.
I've tried this in both a livescript and the command window and I get the same message, even though the file is listed in my workspace.

This error message suggest the file is not in your current folder. You likely had to browse to it when you used the import tool.
Fun fact - since you have imported the data already using the Import Tool, and can see the variable in your Workspace, there is no need to now use readtable or csvread. It's already been loaded.
If you instead want to use readtable or csvread, you need to either
