n=1:500;
n_true = [];
for i=1:length(n)
x = 2:n(i);
nq=factorial(n(i)))+1;
x3 = mod(0,n(i));
if ~any(x3 == nq)
n_true(end+1) = n(i);
end
end
i want find all n values by n!+1 = 0 mod n

By the definition of the factorial function, factorial(n) is equivalent to 0 mod n as it is n*factorial(n-1). [The base case where n = 0 is handled by the convention, listed on the mod documentation page, that mod(x, 0) is x.] So you're looking for values of n for which 1 is also equivalent to 0 mod n. That would mean 1 is an integer multiple of n. For how many values of n is this true?

nq=factorial(n(i)))+1;

Here are more closing then opening parentheses.
Whenever you mention an error in the forum, attach a copy of the complete message.
This is strange also:
x3 = mod(0,n(i))
This checks, if 0 is divisable by n(i). Even the equation n!+1 = 0 mod n looks confusing.
