How do I search whether a column, lets say 'Column1', exists in a table, Table_1, without using strmatch as it is not recommended.

any(ismember(Table_1.Properties.VariableNames,'Column1'))
strcmp works too, in place of ismember

Exist_Column = strcmp('My_Column',My_Table.Properties.VariableNames)
val = Exist_Column(Exist_Column==1) ;
