I have two array
X1 = {'A','B','C','D'}
x2 = {'A','B','C','D','E','F','G','H'}
and I want to create a row having element not found in A i.e.
X3 ={ 'E','F','G','H'}

How about using ismember combined with not (~)?
X1 = {'A','B','C','D'}
X1 = 1×4 cell array
{'A'} {'B'} {'C'} {'D'}
x2 = {'A','B','C','D','E','F','G','H'}
x2 = 1×8 cell array
{'A'} {'B'} {'C'} {'D'} {'E'} {'F'} {'G'} {'H'}
X3 = x2(~ismember(x2,X1))
X3 = 1×4 cell array
{'E'} {'F'} {'G'} {'H'}
