The script performs the same function as xlswrite with the added functionality of formatting the data at the particular location written into, so for example if you want to write headers in blue and numbers in gold, you can do this. The example below illustrates how you can write 400 random numbers into a file using the modified script and the original script from MATLAB 7.0, I hope the formatted one looks cleaner to you
Data = rand(20,20)
params.Bold = 'false';
params.FontSize = 10;
params.FontName = 'Verdana';
params.ColorIndex = 14;
params.NumberFormat = '0.000';
Hope the script is useful, I am not responsible for any hair loss, money, gray hair or other good / bad things which happen. The script is extremely useful for me and I thought I should try to share it. Oh I would like to acknowledge xlswrite for the basic structure, I just hacked in a few more lines, I cannot be bothered looking up the file ID.
