Delete row from dataset array

34 views (last 30 days)
I have a dataset array of strings and doubles, and I would like to delete the first row(completly), I mean the 2nd row will pass to be the 1st and so on... for now I tried deleting the content but the row is still there and Im having indexing problems afterwards:
test{1,i}=[]; %%test is the dataset array and i the index to pass throught all cells
Thanks in advance,

Sorry to not give an example. If we have the array 'test':
test =
8 1 6
3 5 7
4 9 2
I would like to have a 'new_test':
new_test =
3 5 7
4 9 2
This means remove the first row content and increase one row up all the other content or if is possible remove directly the first row(then in this case the 2nd row would be the 1st one) im not sure if this second option is possible.
Thank you Azzi,

test=cell(3,1);
test{1}='row1';
test{2}='row2';
test{3}='row3';
%remove a row:
test={test{2:end,:}}.';
