How do I create a multiline plot using values from a table?

25 views (last 30 days)
For example, I have a table:
User Date1 Date2 ....(I have 500+ dates)
{'A'} 1 6 ...
{'B'} 2 8 ...
{'C'} 3 9 ...
{'D'} 4 11 ...
The dates would be located in the x-axis and the values would be in the y-axis. Each user would be a separate line on that graph. I was thinking of converting it to an array and then attempting to plot that but that method does not seem to be working since I have different types of data in this table. What would be the most efficient way of doing this?

I have cells in my first column but the rest is double.

If I understand the problem correctly this might help
% creating tabel exampel
col1 = {'A';'B';'C';'D';'E'};
col2 = [1:1:5]';
col3 = randi(5,5,1);
col4 = randi(5,5,1);
col5 = randi(5,5,1);
col6 = randi(5,5,1);
my_table = table(col1,col2,col3,col4,col5,col6);
%plot data for each user
[r,c]=size(my_table);
for i=2:1:r
plot(my_table{i,2:end});
hold on;
end
legend(my_table{:,1});

Ok... try this:
set(gca,'XTick',1:length(my_table.Properties.VariableNames(2:end)),'XTickLabel',my_table.Properties.VariableNames(2:end), 'XTickLabelRotation',45)
Also, change the loop vaiable to start from 1 :
for i=1:1:r
plot(my_table{i,2:end});
hold on;
end
