MATLAB: .txt file importation with for loop

data importtxt

Hi !
I'm trying to import .txt files into matrixes.
I can import my -=C1.txt to -=C8.txt files one after another into matrixes (C1 to C8). See example below with matrix C8.What I want to do is making a for loop to import those 8 datas in 1 run. To do so, I need to change those numbers "/Users/…/-=C 8.txt" and "C 8 = cell2mat(raw);" for each increment (from 1 to 8). I tried sprint(), str2num() and many others without finding any solutions. PS: that code has been generated by the Import Wizard in Matlab.
filename = '/Users/.../-=C8.txt';
delimiter = '\t';
startRow = 3;
formatSpec = '%s%s%s%s%s%s%[^\n\r]';
fileID = fopen(filename,'r');
dataArray = textscan(fileID, formatSpec, 'Delimiter', delimiter, 'HeaderLines' ,startRow-1, 'ReturnOnError', false);
%turn point into comma ... blablabla
C8 = cell2mat(raw);
clearvars filename delimiter startRow formatSpec fileID dataArray ans raw col numericData rawData row regexstr result numbers invalidThousandsSeparator thousandsRegExp me R;

  • i = 8;
    filename = sprintf('/Users/.../-=C%d.txt', i)
    filename = ['/Users/.../-=C' int2str(i) '.txt']
    BTW '...' looks really strange to me as a directory name...
