Hey all,

I have an excel file, I need to load this excel file in MATLAB, but it is showing NaN for the position where a matrix is built.

Here is an example:

A = xlsread('Area_Matrix.xlsx');

A =

0 NaN 0 0 0 0 23

NaN 0 47 0 0 0 18

But here NaN should be a matrix like below;

[0 0 ; 0 23];

It is like building a cell array in excel to have a matrix of different dimensions.

I need to get the cell array from excel like below:

A = { 0 [ 0 4749.50 ;0 2375.80] 0 0 0 0 [0 0; 0 2375.8 ] ;

[ 0 4749.50 ;0 2375.80 ] 0 [0 0; 0 2375.8 ] 4749.50 0 0 [0 0; 0 1835.80 ];

0 [ 0 0 ; 0 2375.80] 0 0 0 0 0;

0 4749.50 0 0 2375.80 4749.50 [0 0; 0 1835.80 ];

0 0 0 2375.80 0 0 0;

0 0 0 4749.50 0 0 [0 0; 0 2375.8 ] ;

[0 0; 0 2375.8 ] [0 0; 0 1835.80 ] 0 [0 0; 0 1835.80 ] 0 [0 0; 0 2375.8 ] 0};

So I am planning to use excel to enter the data and load it later in MATLAB.

Any suggestions and answers would be most welcomed

Thanks in advance.
