Hello, I am using xlsread (in basic mode) in UNIX and I get this error: unrecognized header. Apparently it is a common error and there is no workaround. Well, I am still hoping someone could fix it…

  • As far as I understand when reading help xlsread, you can Excel files in basic mode only under Linux. This means, that the "Excel" file must actually be a tab-separated text file or a "compatible with Excel 97-2003". Do you try to process a binary Excel file? Perhaps a XLSX file?
