`I have a cell (curCell_res) which has two columns (column 1 is name and column 2 is the value). I need 230 from column2. This means I need to take everything from A1 to B5 (220) + 10 from C1. 'A1' 27.5'A2' 16.5'A3' 22'A4' 22'A5' 22'B1' 27.5'B2' 16.5'B3' 22'B4' 22'B5' 22'C1' 27.5'C2' 16.5'C3' 22'C4' 22'C5' 22'D1' 27.5'D2' 16.5'D3' 22'D4' 22'D5' 22I need to get to an answer cell that looks like this: 'A1' 27.5'A2' 16.5'A3' 22'A4' 22'A5' 22'B1' 27.5'B2' 16.5'B3' 22'B4' 22'B5' 22'C1' 10I started writing the code: DEMAND = 230;for i = 1:size(BIG,1) %this is the BIG cell array from which curCell_res comes `

curCell_res = BIG{i}; for k=1:size(curCell_res,1) if k==1 Sum_Power(k) = curCell_res(k,2); elseif k > 1 Sum_Power(k) = curCell_res(k,2) + Sum_Power(k-1); if Sum_Power(k) > DEMAND surplus = Sum_Power(k) - DEMAND; %surplus is not needed

not_surplus = curCell_res(k,2) - surplus; the needed bit we have to take

I have problems continuing, I don't know how to formulate the part where I store the the sequence of numbers and the names. Furthermore, I keep on getting errors such as "conversion from double to cell is not possible"… Can you tell me how I should proceed?
