Hi all,
I have the column
A=
'0'
'0'
'uk'l1'
'ukl1'
'ukl1'
'ukl1'
'ukl2'
'ukl2'
'0'
'0'
'Grl1'
'Grl1'
'Grl1'
'ukl1'
'Grl2'
'Grl3'
'Grl4'
' 0'
'Gerl1'
'Gerl1'
'Gerl2'
'Gerl3'
'Gerl4'
i want using the command similar to the below one
ismember(A,{'} )
to choose all the elements of A apart from zero. so it should be something like
ismember(A,{'ukl1' 'ukl2' 'ukl3' 'ukl4' 'ukl5' and so forth ...) )
but the problem is that A in my daraset is 8000 by 1 and contains many string variables (ukl1, ukl2,...,) so it would be very tiring to write by hand all these string variables into ismember. I would also like to mention that for example the first two letters of say, 'ukl1'denote the country (uk) and the last two the location (location 1, location 2, location3,...) thanks

Do you want to exclude ' 0' too?
