Hi
I have a table and in one column there is a row of subject numbers going from one digit up to three digits.
t.Var1 =
5
88
194
I would like to reformat them so they are like this i.e. 'Subject' at beginning and all number with 3 digits (1 and 2 digit numbers should have 00 and 0 at begining respectively to make 3 digits.)
t.Var1 =
Subject005
Subject088
Subject194
Could someone advise how to do this?

% leading zero in the format specifier specifies leading zeros in your string
t.Var1 = "Subject" + string(num2str(t.Var1,'%03i'));
