Hi there,
I am trying to convert a cell into a vector, but I always get the error message: "Brace indexing is not supported for variables of this type."
% Datum korrigieren (date originally is a 14386x1 cell)
date(1,:)=[] ; % remove word
row1 = cell2mat(date(1,:)); % Start time
datenum= str2double(date);
datevec = cell2mat(datenum{:}); % cell to vector
% all elements - row1
The problem must be in line beginning with datevec
Brace indexing is not supported for variables of this type.
Error in location (line 18)
datevec = cell2mat(datenum{:}); % Umwandlung von Cell in Vector
How can I solve it?
And am I right that I can not substract an number from each element of a cell?

The variable datenum is not a cell array and thus, the error. Can you provide the data mat file? Also, What is that you are trying to do?

Oh yes, it's a double.
I want to substract the first element from all elements of this variable.

datevec = cell2mat(datenum);
Or check
class(datenum)
It should be already a converted to double.
