I'm trying to upload data to a field in my ThingSpeak channel. So far I have been able to upload a single number to the field. But when I tried to upload array like x = [1,2,3,4] it would give me this error: "'Values' must be a scalar, a 1-by-n numeric vector, or a cell array and must have the same dimensions as the 'Fields' value."
I'm using thingspeakwrite function like this : thingSpeakWrite(id,'Fields',1,'Values',x,'WriteKey',apikey).

x = [1, 2, 3, 4];
thingSpeakWrite(id, 'Fields', length(x), 'Values', x, 'WriteKey', apikey)

I think Mostafa wants to write to one field? If so, then 'fields' is just the field number, its not a number of fields to write to unfortunately. To write to multiple fields, use 'Fields', [1 3 4 5],... to write to those four fields. (all with the same timestamp)
That said, Timetables are usually the easiest way to write multiple things as Walter says.

Here is one possibility.
thingSpeakWrite(958725, 'Fields', 1, 'Values', join(string(x)), 'WriteKey', writeKey)
y = "[ 1 2 3 4]";
thingSpeakWrite(958725, 'Fields', 1, 'Values', y, 'WriteKey', writeKey)
