Hi guys, I'm trying opening and export data from a .txt file, but it cannot read the numbers that are inside. Indeed, if I use read matrix command, the matrix that Matlab creates is full of "NaN". How can I overcome this problem?
Thank you very much in advance!
you find attached the .txt file

The format of the text file is not trivial. Some headers and data sections occur and without having the exact definition it is not possible to parse this file reliably. Then readmatrix does not have a chance to understand the contents of the file automagically.
Ask the producer of this file for a clear definition of the file format. Then it is possible to write a parser. This will be a serious amount of work.
