Importing text file containing numbers and words

3 views (last 30 days)
I want to import a text file into MATLAB. I want MATLAB to ignore the first 3 lines, detect the 4th line as header, and identify data from the 6th row on. How can it be done?
var1 var2 var3
abc1 100 abc1
abc2 200 abc2

"How can it be done?"
Of course: simply specify the appropriate options with READTABLE().
If you have any further questions, make sure that you upload a sample data file by clicking the paperclip button.
