 Subject: can a string be asigned to a single element of matrix From: rohit Date: 11 Jun, 2012 06:08:07 Message: 1 of 3 can a string be asigned to a single element of matrix? like i have a string, a='i am there' then here 'a' is a vector of size 10. What i want is to assign this whole string into an element of a matrix. like say b(2,1) = a; is it possible?

You can make cell matrix or cell vector.
