I have a grid of cells and I want to get the average value of cells in the 7th column.

I am new to Matlab. Here is what I am doing:
% mean(name_of_table(:,7))
but I get the error
% Undefined function 'sum' for input arguments of type 'cell'.
What's wrong?

Note: this will not work if "name_of_table" is referring to a table() data structure rather than to a cell array like in your question heading.

Based on the error, it seems you have a cell, not a table. Table is another type of variables in Matlab.
