Use repmat to avoid manually typing all 160 of those ‘%q’ repeats!
Try this:
formatSpec = ['%f',repmat('%q',1,160), '%[^\n\r]'];

First, use my code, or that of others who have responded to your series of related Questions. They are easier and less prone to error.
Second, it is not possible to break up that long character array into several lines of arbitrary length. Every continued line has to be the same length.
