Managing Data

Data import and export, grouping variables

Move data into and out of MATLAB® using several different file formats. Valid formats include tabular data, tab-delimited files, Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheets, and SAS® XPORT files. Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox™ provides additional data types for working with grouping variables and categorical data. The toolbox also supports many, but not all, of the data types available in MATLAB. For more information, see Supported Data Types.
