I have been using xlswrite function since years in R2011a Matlab version in windows.
Now my work has shifted to ubuntu 12.04 and I downloaded latest MAtlab version R2012a.
xlswrite function is not working. It shows following error:
"" Error using xlswrite (line 188) An error occurred on data export in CSV format.
Error using dlmwrite (line 118) The input cell array cannot be converted to a matrix. ""
I don't know why the error is showing csv or dlmwrite related errors while I am working with excel sheets.
the doc for xlswrite cleary states:
If your system does not have Excel for Windows, or if the COM server (part of the typical installation of Excel) is unavailable, then the xlswrite function: Writes array A to a text file in comma-separated value (CSV) format.
Since you are using Linux you don't have Excel => MATLAB tries writing a CSV file using the dlmread command, which fails because the cell data you try to write cant be converted into a matrix.
