Sorry to bother you, but I think there is something wrong with your function. At first I thought it may have something to do with the dates. I tried integers and text; nothing worked.
requireDateNumber = 'C';
data = xlsread('C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2012a\StockSymbols.xls'); rowIndex = (data(:,1) == requiredDateNumber);
if any(rowIndex) rowData = data(rowIndex,2:end); else error('There is no corresponding row.'); end
Here is the error: Error in Read_Specific_Row (line 34) rowIndex = (data(:,1) == requiredDateNumber);
'requireDateNumber' must be just a variable. It doesn't have to be a date, or numeric, or anything specific, right.
