MATLAB: Using xlsread to put info into a cell array

xlsread

Hye!
I have to use xlsread to put information from an excell file into a cell array.
My teacher has given the following instruction:
[~,~,tabel] = xlsread('zurenEnBasen.xlsx')
But I don't understand what the [~,~,tabel] thing does…
Anyone who knows?

    The xlsread function has three possible outputs. The tilde (~) signs here tell MATLAB to ignore the first two of those outputs. See the documentation section on Ignore Function Outputs for an extended explanation.
