Hi, is it possible to assign table variable name based on strings in an array. For example:
colnames={'a' 'b'};
a=[1;2];
b=[3;4];
c=table();
c.colnames{1}=a;
c.colnames{2}=b;
Thank you.

Do you mean like this:
c.(colnames{1}) = a;
c.(colnames{2}) = b;

Set the VariableNames of the table when you create it.
colnames = {'a' 'b'};
a = [1;2];
b = [3;4];
c = table(a, b, 'VariableNames', colnames)
Or change them later by assigning to the VariableNames property of the table.
newnames = {'Alice', 'Bob'};
c.Properties.VariableNames = newnames
