Copying multiple files to a location using wildcard

18 views (last 30 days)
Hi,
How can I use the copyfile command to copy multiple files of extension '*.csv' to a specific location?
I tried this but it gave errors:
copyfile(fullfile(RawCSVfolder,'*.csv'),ProcessedFoldersDirectory);
Thanks,

As per the help document
copyfile('Projects/my*','../newProjects/') so it should be
copyfile([RawCSVfolder '\*.csv'],ProcessedFoldersDirectory);

What value does ProcessedFoldersDirectory have at that point? Is it possibly the value 0 ? Or possibly a cell string rather than a plain string?

yup these should be in curly brackets, made this mistake too many times:
RawCSVfolder=RawCSVfolder{WhichLocation};
ProcessedFoldersDirectory = ProcessedFoldersDirectory{WhichLocation}
