Good day. I seem to get the below mentioned xlmwrite error message. Does this suggest my Excel is not compatible? I am using Matlab 2015a. Thanks

Very strange. What about if you run this:
list = actxcontrollist;
for k = 1:2
sprintf(' Name = %s\n ProgID = %s\n File = %s\n', list{k,:})
end
Does anything say excel here? If this also fails/isempty, you may have a problem with the activex part of Windows (separate from Matlab)
If this doesn't work, you could try connecting to Excel using .NET (instead of COM). I've not used it, but it looks reasonable.
