replacing some string variables by others; a small problem

1 view (last 30 days)
Dear all,
i have the following problem
I want to replace the elements of EER with the corresponding elements from EER1
where
EER={datebeg '01/01/2009' '01/07/2009' };
EER1={'1' '2' '3' '4'};
and
datebeg =
'01/11/2009'
Unfortunately the '01/11/2009' is not replace by '1' and I need
to maintain the code as it is; that is using datebeg in EER instead of
'01/11/2009'
Is there a way of doing this?
I use the following code for the replacement
isAW = strcmp(raw(:, 1), 'EE');
AWtext = raw(isAW, 8); % Only the AW rows
for k = 1:numel(EER)
AWtext(strcmp(AWtext, EER{k})) = {EER1{k}};
end
new(isAW) = AWtext;
thanks

Please post the code you use for replacing the strings. It is confusing, that EER and EER1 have a different number of elements.

thanks Jan. sorry for my mistake. this is the code I used
EER={datebeg '01/01/2009' '01/07/2009' };
EER1={'1' '2' '3' };
isAW = strcmp(raw(:, 1), 'EE');
AWtext = raw(isAW, 8); % Only the AW rows
for k = 1:numel(EER)
AWtext(strcmp(AWtext, EER{k})) = {EER1{k}};
end
new(isAW) = AWtext;
where raw is a matrix
With thte above code I replace all the elements that I want apart from the first one
