I need help about a code on how to check if words like "M3 TRIPPED" is present in the sentence of the table cells, and output a matrix indicating the row number and column where this phrase is present.
Thank you.

Try contains().
if contains(ca{2, 1}, 'M3 TRIPPED')
% It contains that phrase in row 2, column 1 of cell array called ca
% etc. more code...
Attach your cell array in a .mat file if you need more help.
