Hello all,
I have a problem in saving Struct format in .mat file.
If I have "a" as 1x5 struct
So, in command window it looks like this:
a =
ans =
246
ans =
444
ans =
630
ans =
810
ans =
984
Any way that I can save it as a .mat file of 1x5?
Thanks so much for your help :)

Here is the file:

I want to save
a.latency
which consists of 947 value in one mat file. I do like:
save filename.mat a.latency
... but doesn't work!!!

Of course this does not work, because "a.latency" is not a name of a variable. You need:
save('filename.mat', 'a')
The functional form is less confusing for the save command.
If you want to save the fields "latency" only:
latency = {a.latency};
save('filename.mat', 'latency')

for K = 1 : number_of_files
filename = sprintf('File%d.mat', K);
save(filename, 'Ir')
end

What do you mean by "a .mat file of 1x5"?
>> save filename.mat a
will save the structure, exactly as it is in the workspace.
>> load filename.mat a
will load it back into the workspace.

I uploaded the .mat file in here. I want to save a.latency which consists of 947 value in one mat file. I do like:
save filename.mat a.latency
but doesn't work!!
