cell array dimensions do not match

I am having a problem where I am trying to create a cell array of strings to use in rmfield. I am combining a stem(chart) with a number (any number) to create the field I want to remove. For example, if I need to remove DeltaT.chart1, deltaT.chart6, deltaT.chart7, then my cell array would be:
chart1
chart6
chart7

The problem I have is when I get to chart 10 or more. If I have a number greater than 10 I would have the following:
chart1
chart6
chart7
chart10
and I get the error
??? Error using ==> vertcat
CAT arguments dimensions are not consistent.

Error in ==> remover at 28
toremove = [toremove;field]

I think because I am trying to fit a 7 character wide (chart10) string into a 6 character wide cell array.

Is there a way around this or something I can do instead? My code is below if it helps.

Thanks,
Alex

for a = 17%1:22
listremove = []
toremove = []
rmvr = 0;
Fileone = 'NODIPSinBTBTB_Delta';
File = [Fileone,'Comp',int2str(a)]

load([Fileone,int2str(a),'.mat'])

data = deltaT;
stem = 'chart';

for L = 1:length(fieldnames(data))
field = [stem,int2str(L)];

if length(data.(field)) == 0
rmvr = 1
listremove = [listremove L];
end
end
if rmvr == 1
for g = 1:length(listremove)
field = [stem,int2str(listremove(g))]
toremove = [toremove;field]
end
deltaT = rmfield(data, toremove)
end

save(File, 'deltaT')

clear all

end
