Loading .mat file content into base workspace by calling load function within a gui callback function

2 views (last 30 days)
I can't load the data I want into base workspace (although they appear perfectly in the command window) for furthe use. I use Load function within a gui callback function and I think this what makes loading process difficult. To be more specific, I need to load variables tmp and specs into base workspace, any ideas? Please see the attached screenshot for more details. Many thanks

I'm confused about the "import filename.*" .
It is ugly and you find many threads - hundreds - about suggestions to avoid the remote creation of variables. Such methods impede the debugging drastically. So don't do this!
But if you are willing to apply this:
assignin('base', 'Act_specs', tmp);
assignin('base', 'specs', tmp.Act_Specs);
