Thanx for the reply Nasser, The solutions you gave, work for only one 'direct' path file. I need to do this for all my files, so I 'm not planning to change 200 times the 'myfile.txt' name. The eval(['load ' fnames(k).name ' -ascii']); code I use to give the correct file (which is a string (converts number to string)), because the code below can't recognize the files correct.
for k = 1 : length(fnames) fname = fnames(k).name; log = impordata('fname.txt'); // fname is variable so this gives a problem disp(log) end
