How to allow a user to open the Import Tool in App Designer?

1 view (last 30 days)
I'm trying to make an app that accepts the user's data tables for cross-referencing between the tables which requires a bit of user input for it to work correctly. In order to streamline this process, I want it to open the import tool available in MATLAB so the user can make the appropriate edits to the table without changing their original table. Is there any code that can be followed up with uigetfile that opens the Import Tool window? Many thanks.

Use the MATLAB Command Prompt syntax to open the import tool
  • MATLAB command prompt: Enter uiimport(filename), where filename is a character vector specifying the name of a text or spreadsheet file.
