The only things that I need are: 1) the Start date and time in the Start Data row 2) the headers and the numeric matrix below them (I had some formatted files and I used import data to import them with no problem).
What I am trying to do is to move the pointer to the start of the Start Data line and read that line and then move it again to the start of the data matrix. I could not get the result I was looking for with 'fscanf'.
A few things to note:
1) The size of the matrix is not constant and could change from file to file.
2) I am reading a series of files, but assuming that I can get one working that shouldn't be a problem.
3) I would prefer to store the data for each file in a structure for future use.
Any help with this is greatly appreciated. Rouzbeh
