I wanted to use the method in
to import a struct into a matlab funciton block as I am not really familiar with busses (and the help examples I found weren't really on point as I didn't want to create the struct in simulink, I want to read in a struct created in the workspace into simulink and use it in a function block). This help was referenced in some forum posts I found on this site (I can see this issue comes up but I couldn't get the solutions to work for me, so I must be missing something).
When I follow the guide in the above link, i get the error
Parameter struct has a value of an unsupported type Parameter Data 'struct'
Component:MATLAB Function | Category:Coder error
Is anyone able to assist with where I have gone wrong?

Do you actually have a variable in the base (or model, I suppose) workspace named 'struct'? That would be odd because struct is a built-in function, and normally one doesn't name variables to override built-in function names.
The function signature in the block should be:
[FX,FY,MZ] = solve_function(GAMMA,FZ,alpha_deg,k,mystruct)
mystruct needs to be defined in the base workspace (or I think it can be in the model workspace), and the Scope of mystruct should be set to Parameter in the Ports and Data Manager.

infact, that looks like it was the issue. Even though I wasn't calling the text, its existance in the struct caused the problem.
