I have a variable which contains some character data and now I want define a matrix with the same character data by using the variable. for example let variable V='abc' and now I want to define a matrix with name abc using variable V. The code which I am using is
V='abc'; u=rand(3); V=u;
Now I want that u should be assign to 'abc' but the above code actually redefine the variable V. Hope I have put my point.

V='abc'; u=rand(3);eval([V '=u']);

You might have accidentally defined "rand" or "eval" as variables.
In any case this approach is not recommended; please see the link I posted.
