Dear all,
I use matlab 2011.
I get the following error message
Error using
Interface.000208DB_0000_0000_C000_000000000046/Open
Invoke Error, Dispatch Exception:
Source: Microsoft Excel
Description: Microsoft Excel cannot access the file
'C:\wow2\oio.xlsx'.
There are several possible reasons:
The file name or path does not exist.
The file is being used by another program.
The workbook you are trying to save has the same name as a
currently open workbook.
Help File: xlmain11.chm
Help Context ID: 0
Error in xlsread (line 248)
ExcelWorkbook = Excel.workbooks.Open(file,0,true);
I am trying to merge 46 excel files. the total size of the merged file is 5 milions rows by 25 columns.
could you tell me what the problem is?
thanks

Is there any way to "fix" it within Matlab?

IF the error is coming from Excel, not from MATLAB, then you cannot fix it in MATLAB. You need to be looking at Excel for this.
