I know I've kind of already asked the same thing on an older post I found (http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/newsreader/view_thread/305448) but as this is not just a problem I'm having with that particular thing I thought starting a new thread made sense
Just to clarify, you are using xlsread as a function in another "script" .m file called "xlsread_trial_2.m"? And, the first like of the "xlsread_trial_2.m" file is A = xlsread('myExample.xls')?
If that is the case, I don't see why you would be getting an error, unless the .xls file is not in the same directory?
