Dear all,
I have the matrix
A={ 'EE' [ 1]
'EE' [NaN]
'EE' [NaN]
'EE' '2'
'EE' [NaN]
'EE' [NaN]
'EE' [NaN]
'EE' [NaN]
'EE' [NaN]
'EE' '3'
'EE' [NaN]
'EE' [NaN]
'EE' [NaN]
'EE' [NaN]

'EE' [NaN]

I want to convert the values of the last column to strings so as to have
A={ 'EE' '1'

c2=A(:,2)
idx=cellfun(@(x) isnumeric(x)& ~isnan(x),c2)
c2=cellfun(@num2str,c2,'un',0)
A(idx,2)=c2(idx)
