numdata = xlsread("res Data.xlsx");
1500 1500 500 1500 500 2500
850 850 200 850 200 1000
2800 2800 1700 2800 1700 5200
500 500 300 500 300 3000
1600 1600 1000 1600 1000 2700
10 9 10 11 10 9
9 9 9 10 9 9
13 11 13 12 13 11
21 18 21 20 21 18
18 18 18 19 18 18
for i = 1:6
Q(i) = numdata(1:5,i);
end
for i = 1:6
F(i) = numdata(6:10,i);
end
Hello I want to store a part of the array with some other name like I want Q1 = 1500 850 2800 500 1600
then Q2 = 1500 850 2800 500 1600 and so on..
and F1 = 10 9 13 21 18 and so on..
i get an error of incompatible size. Please help mein how to handle big data from excel sheets to store data appropriately.

What you want to do is incredibly inefficient and difficult to work with. Read more here
You already have the data in matrices, you can access them via indexing, in an easy, efficient and clear manner.

numdata = [1500 1500 500 1500 500 2500;
850 850 200 850 200 1000;
2800 2800 1700 2800 1700 5200;
500 500 300 500 300 3000;
1600 1600 1000 1600 1000 2700;
10 9 10 11 10 9;
9 9 9 10 9 9;
13 11 13 12 13 11;
21 18 21 20 21 18;
18 18 18 19 18 18];
for i = 1:6
Q(i,:) = numdata(1:5,i);
end
The variable in this case is a matrix. Is it fine if it is this way in stead of individual variables called Q1,Q2? If this is need,
Q(1,:)
ans = 1×5
1500 850 2800 500 1600
Q(2,:)
ans = 1×5
1500 850 2800 500 1600
If this is needed, then you could use assignin.
assignin('base','Q1',Q(1,:))
Q1
Q1 = 1×5
1500 850 2800 500 1600
for i = 1:6
F(i,:) = numdata(6:10,i);
end
F(1,:)
ans = 1×5
10 9 13 21 18
F(2,:)
ans = 1×5
9 9 11 18 18
If you are dealing with large data and this was just a sample dataset, I would recommend using spreadsheetdatastore and tall arrays.
ssds = spreadsheetDatastore(location,"FileExtensions",[".xlsx",".xls"]) ;
tt = tall(ssds)

Thank you this helps a lot!

Here is the corrected code:
Q = numdata(1:5, :)';
F = numdata(6:10, :)';

Keep your data stored in matrices that you can index into.
numdata = xlsread("res Data.xlsx");
Q=numdata(1:5,:);
F=numdata(6:10,:);
Q1=Q(:,1);Q2=Q(:,2);%whenever you want them Q(:,n)

"Can we not write a for loop for putting it From Q1 to Q6??"
Sure, if you really want to make accessing your data slow, complex, and inefficient:
