Unless test is a row vector, this won't work. The expression on the left of the equals sign represents a scalar (a 1by1 chunk of split{1}) while the expression on the right of the equals sign represents a size(test, 1)by1 chunk of data. The latter is too big to fit into the former unless as I said size(test, 1) is 1.

Ditto.

There's no need for a loop here. Either:
1) If test is of odd length, pad it with a NaN then RESHAPE it. Otherwise just RESHAPE it. 2) split{1} = test(:, 1:12021); split{2} = test(:, 12022:end);
If test may vary in size, you could use floor(end/2) in the second expression to generalize it.
