When I tried to use fprintf to print numerical data and char in the same row, here is my code:
fprintf(fileID, ' %7d %8d %6d %s %4.2f %s %4.2f %3.1f\r\n', [d1 d2 d3 d4' d5 d6' d7 d8]');
Unfortunately, I obtained the following error message:
Error using fprintf
Unable to convert 'string' value to 'int64'.
Would anyone could tell me how to fix this error?
Thanks a lot.
Printing different variable classes (such as numeric and character), requires a loop:
for k = 1 : something
fprintf(fileID, ' %7d %8d %6d %s %4.2f %s %4.2f %3.1f\r\n', [d1(k) d2(k) d3(k) d4(k) d5(k) d6(k) d7(k) d8(k)]);
... or something similar.
Experiment to get the desired result
