Where M is your matrix:
newmat = M(M(:,1)~=0,:)

Hello Aniee,
I tried this, it works as per your requirement.
copy and paste this in command window:
A=[ 0 2; 2 3; 0 5; 6 0; 7 8; 8 0; 9 1]
A =
0 2
2 3
0 5
6 0
7 8
8 0
9 1
Now, copy and paste this in command window:
%I have taken only 7 rows. You can do this for 1500 rows. It works exactly the same way.
for i=1:7
if A(i,1) == 0
A(i,:) = [];
end
end
Now type A in command window:
A =
2 3
6 0
7 8
8 0
9 1
You can see the difference.
I hope it will be helpful.
