Dear All, I have a very large CSV file with 5 columns which contains some historical financial prices.
Column 1 is our date starting from 1/3/2007 all the way till till mid 2011 in the form of mm/dd/yyyy.
Column 2 is our time of out trades in the form of :
35:45.0 35:45.0 35:46.0 35:46.0 35:46.0 (as seen in excel)
However when I change the data type of this column in excel from CUSTOM to TIME I get something better which I need:
13:07:23 13:07:24 13:07:24 13:07:25 13:07:25
Column 3 is our respective prices
Column 4 is our symbol (stays the same)
Column 5 is the number of trades.
So my question is I have all of this information...
I want to put the all the columns in one matrix in MATLAB (apart from 4). But I DONT want it to be a string matrix as I want to do some operations with the data.
Hint: May need to convert column 1 and 2 in to number format?
