Closing an excel workbook through Matlab
I'm busy writing some code that opens an existing excel file through
Matlab, copies some information from Matlab into the excel file, runs
an excel macro, and finally saves and exits the excel file.
I've got everything to work, but the problem is I get a prompt from
excel telling me that the spreadsheet file exists and asking me if
I'd like to save over it. I'd like to automatically answer yes and
not have the dialog box appear. I've pasted my code below, does
anyone have any ideas?
The problem occurs when I execute the command wdata.save;
Thanks in advance,
...Move an Excel Worksheet to another Excel Workbook with Matlab
I need to move an Excel Worksheet to a different Workbook with
matlab. I am currently able to create an Excel worksheet and add
data to the required cells. I want to be able to move this Worksheet
to a different workbook. When I try the code,
it creates a new workbook and moves the worksheet to the newly
created workbook instead of 'Resutls.xls'.
It also gives the error
??? One or more output arguments not assigned during call to "Move".
Does anyone have any ideas?

Is there any limitation to run Matlab from Matlab, as a system command, on Linux platforms ?
I tried to start Matlab, both using the ! syntax (!matlab&) or the system command (system('matlab&')), the Matlab splash screen appears, but the new Matlab session closes rapidly .
When I do the same with a script of mine (system('matlab -r "myscript"&')), my script is being executed, but Matlab finally crashes .
If I remove the &, it works well, but the first Matlab session is blocked till I close the second one .

For my project, I need to have a client program (MATLAB executable) talking
to a server program (also MATLAB executable) to query data. Is there any
easy way to accomplish that?
I appreciate any help that I can get on that.
Oops, I forgot to mention. There are multiple clients querying the server,
so I guess serial objects + remote serial port wouldn't work.

I have a problem with writing from Matlab in an existing Ms Excel
file. The existing Excel file contains data from other Excel files in
graphs. Therefore, when I access the file from Matlab I get the
following warning message
This workbook contains links to other data sources.
- To update all linked information, click Yes
- To keep the existing information, click No
Is there a way to automatically send a message to Excel so it does
not update the linked information?

...Excel error 429 when running Matlab magic square example from Matlab builder
I was working with the Matlab builder magic square example (can be found in matlab builder users guide) in Matlab to compile and build m-files into COM objects for Excel. Essentially, the building process creates a .bas file which can be imported into Visual Basic Editor in MS Excel. In the VB code, the Matlab functions essentially end up being wrapped up inside COM objects and you can invoke these functions in the excel spreadsheet.
The example works successfully for output to a single cell. For outputing to multiple cells simultaneously, the code changes a little as a macros are in...Problem Closing Excel Workbook Using DDE (was: Is Specific Workbook Open in Excel via DDE?)

Nancy and all -
I finally figured this one out. The problem was that I needed quotes around the argument to the DDE Workbook.Activate() function. With that in place, my approach using fput()/fwrite() works fine. I prefer that method because then my XLClose macro isn't limited to use at a step boundary, as it would otherwise be through the use of a regular put statement in a data step. FWIW, corrected versions of the macros from my previous email are included below.

When I want to use Matlab variables in another program, I write them
to file. You can use comma separated files (csv). Try:
> help csvwrite
> help dlmwrite
Works fine for me.
Hope this helps,

...Excel In Matlab
I am reading in an excel file using the command:
[A, headertext] = xlsread('File.xls')
My numeric values are in A and column names saved in
headertext. Now I make my changes and I am trying to use
xlswrite to write out the file.
My question is, how to incorporate the same column names
in headertext while writing out a new excel file?
You'll need to make a cell array containing the
string/headers and the numeric data, similar to Example 2
in the doc for xlswrite.
So something like,
[A, headertext] = xlsread('File.xls');
newA = .....
