I know this could be done just by creating a new variable by simply typing the new vaules in as shown in (h), but the data set I have is very much larger than the example shown here. > > > > > > help ISMEMBER > > > use the last column of g as one of its input and use the output to logically index into g. > > > > > > hth > > > Jos > > > > > > Right so I would create a variable from (g) using the last column:a=g(:,2); and use this as an input and use (f) as an output.

Thanks alot Jos, I have finally managed to get there on that one. One more small problem, how do you find numbers the same in col 1 as opposed to consecutive numbers:
a=[822 2266 10 822 2266 13 923 3487 12 1060 2086 14 1060 2086 19 1403 2831 15]
so I would want sort (a) into (b):
b=[822 2266 13 923 3487 12 1060 2086 19 1403 2831 15]
