calculate data based on previous values and replace it at negative and zeros values

there is different data in the column in excel (REACTIVE_Y_PH), which has some negative and zeros values also, these values should be replaced by calculating the average of previous data and replace them.

What were the "last" 5 values when the first few are to be replaced? There are no elements at indexes -4 to 0. Or did you mean the "last" ones at the other end of the array, like from vec(end-4:end)?

No, previous values of the column before that value, Like in the image, first 15 values in the second column are negative so make them positive and at 16th row '0' that will be replaced by previous 5 values average((11.5+9.2+9.2+6.9+4.6)/5).Similarly do for next values

[num,txt,raw] = xlsread('sample.xls') ;
data = cell2mat(cellfun(@str2num,txt(:,2),'un',0)) ;
%%fill negative and zeros
idx = data<=0 ;
data(idx) = NaN ;
data = fillmissing(data,'previous') ;
