# MATLAB: Cell symbolic matrix into simple symbolic matrix

cellduplicate post requiring merging

Hello all,
I am having a cell of 3d symbolic object matrix, but I need to convert this matrix into simple symbolic matrix.
I tried using 'cell2mat' function but it is not helping as this function doesn't help when cell contains symbolic objects.
I need to convert into simple matrix as, I need to perform some multiplication operation on simple matrix, which is not possible if it is in cell form.
Can anyone help me, in this regard.
