I have the following code. It doesn't work when I press the run command. But it strangely works in the command prompt single-step debugging and what is even more strange to me is that it works in the 'Run and Advance' in the xlsread part without any error. I had faced this DisplayAlerts issue before too, and I used to work with it by just reading the file in the command prompt or working with the 'Run and Advance' thing. But out of curiosity I would like to know what exactly is the difference in either of the approach and why the simple run doesn't work but the 'Run and Advance' works. Thanks in advance.
[filename,pathname] = uigetfile('Open text file','MultiSelect','on');
Excel = actxGetRunningServer('Excel.Application');
Excel.DisplayAlerts = false;
data = xlsread(fullfile(pathname, filename))';
