Thank you nasser
as per your instruction i have written in following way:
fid = fopen('new1.txt'); % the file name is new1.txt which contains 1971X1 cell mydata = textscan(fid, '%s %f, %s %f, %s %f'); fclose(fid);
but my data shows only for 450X1. i just can't understand why. but the data for x, y, z is extracted and showed in matrix form. but the problem is they are not showing all the data.
