Hello, I am trying to open a cdf file. I have a program which has opened some cdf files in past. But Im unable to open the new set.
files = dir('mvn_*.cdf');
num_files = length(files);
data= cell(1, num_files);;
for j = 1:numel(files)
list = fullfile(files(j).folder, files(j).name);
vars = cdfinfo(list).Variables(:,1);
data{j} = cell2table(cdfread(list), 'VariableNames', vars);
Will really appreciate a solution here. Thanks

CDF can mean a few different things. For example, is it Common Data Format, or Computable Document Format, or something else?

common data format, here.

Hi Sonali,
I understand from the code you have provided, that you want to read a Common Data Format (CDF) file. I tried running your program and everything seems alright, however the cdfread function throws an error.
As of R2021a, reading CDF files which use a few certain datatypes is not supported. However, you can use the spdfcdfread function present in the patch provided by NASA for reading the CDF files you have. This could be the possible reason, which has been mentioned here for a similar problem.
Download the patch file, and extract it to a specified folder. Add that folder to matlab path using the addpath command. You can get the patch and detailed installation instructions from here:
Once you are done with that change "cdfread" in your function to "spdfcdfread" as shown below and it generates the expected "data" table.
data{j} = cell2table(spdfcdfread(list), 'VariableNames', vars);
Hope this resolves your query.
