readcell() instead of readtable(). Your file mixes data types.

Hi,
Try to use readtable('test.csv','Format','%s,%s'). It will force the data to be treated as text.
Since you columns are mixing number and date values, it is better to keep it as char and post-process it later.

Error using readtable (line 245)
Unable to read the entire file. You may need to specify a different format, delimiter, or number of header lines.
Note: readtable detected the following parameters:
'Delimiter', ',', 'HeaderLines', 0, 'ReadVariableNames', true
