If you have the Symbolic Math Toolbox, you can use the LATEX function in conjunction with SYM to create a LaTeX table to represent MATLAB data in a table format. For example:
A = [1 2 3; 4 5 6; 7 8 9];
latex_table = latex(sym(A))
The resulting value in latex_table will be:
\left [\begin {array}{ccc} 1&2&3\\\noalign{\medskip}4&5&6\\\noalign{\medskip}7&8&9\end {array}\right ]
This string can then be pasted into any LaTex document.

Frieder Wittmann, it does work:
%default with the sympref not set
>> latex(sym(rand))
ans =
'\frac{4411405500742427}{9007199254740992}'
%set it
>> sympref('FloatingPointOutput',1)
ans =
logical
0
%and experiment again
>> latex(sym(rand))
ans =
'0.4456'
