How to save a matrix from an object with unknow name?

1 view (last 30 days)
I have a file with around 50 variables, each with different names, so I have their names contained in a cell array called filtered_vars.
Then in order to load them I was using
for i=1:1%size(filtered_vars,1)
temp=load('merged_t7_original',filtered_vars{i})
end
temp =
struct with fields:
N_force_wind_to_wave_Nmin: [1444202×672×2 single]
Now my problem is that the variable temp corresponds to a structure object with the name of the variable which was loaded, and then I don't know how to read it in order to save it into a matrix.

Hi Adam, Thank you for your answer, I'm sorry about the lack of information, the problem is that I don't have a clue what is on the matrices, they are numbers, but different types in each of the matrices, basically I need to take the column "j" in each of them, complementing it with the following answer given by drummer, I'm able to fix my problem, the magic command was "cell2mat(struct2cell(temp))" and the code will look like this:
load('merged_t7_original','t7_info')
j=min(find(contains(t7_info.N.Unique,'B_60AQ')==1))
full_vars=who('-file','merged_t7_original');
filtered_vars=full_vars(contains(full_vars,'Nmin'));
for i=1:size(filtered_vars,1)
temp=load('merged_t7_original',filtered_vars{i});
temp=cell2mat(struct2cell(temp));
data_{i}=temp(:,j,1);
end

Try
yourMatrix = cell2mat(struct2cell(YourStructure));
Cheers
