Hello. I have about a directory C:\images\temp that has inside 100 sub directories named by a date.
Inside these date named subdirectories, there are 2 directories deep (who's names can vary) and residing in there is a csv file I want to open. I thought I could use wildcards for the 2 additional directories but apparently not
pathStart='C:\images\temp'
list_dir = dir(pathStart)
list_dir.name
list_files = '';
for i = 1:length(list_dir)
cur_files = dir([pathStart list_dir(i).name '/*.csv'])
list_files = [list_files,fullfile(list_dir(i).name,{cur_files.name})];
end
Is it possible to search down 2 subdirectories from a starting directory and read a certain cell from the csv file?

pathStart = 'C:\images\temp';
list_dir = dir(fullfile(pathStart, '**', '*.csv')); % Working since R2016b
for i = 1:length(list_dir)
cur_files = fullfile(list_dir(i).folder, list_dir(i).name)
end
