Loading table from object from .mat file

7 views (last 30 days)
I import a table object that I have stored in a .mat file (attachment) using:
ParaDat=load('ParameterDatabase.mat')
Then, I try to assign values to the different elements of that table, e.g.
A1=ParaDat.a1
but this line generates the error message: Unrecognized field name "a1"
Also, if I try to convert the imported struct to a table using:
Dat=struct2table(ParaDat)
A1=Dat.a1
but I wtill see the same error message. How can I address the different variables of the imported table?

OK, thanks, Stephen, but why should I NOT load directly into the workspace?

If the table object in that .mat file is called MyTable, then after ParaDat=load('ParameterDatabase.mat'), you can access it by
ParaDat.MyTable
If you run load('ParameterDatabase.mat'), then you can access that table directly
MyTable
