Hello all, I have a large data, I divide the data into different columns with a for loop. For loop is essential since I don't just divide the data into parts, I also manipulate the data.
inxi = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7] => a column vector
ws and step => scalar numbers
i => for loop variable
inxi = labels_win(:,1);
inx(:,i) = inxi-ws*(step-1);
I want the column vector to be stored in the next column at each for iteration like shown below

You can append new column data onto an existing array provided the heights are equal by concatenating the new vector onto the old array.
A % Some original array of data such that. [rows,cols] = size(A);
B = []; % Empty array
for c=1:cols
inxi = A(:,c);
% Some calculations
% inxi = ...
% Recontructing a new matrix from the modified columns
% B(:,c) = [B,inxi];
B = [B,inxi]; % Removed array index from left-hand side of the operation
end
You can also perform calculations directly to various columns of your original array.
B = A; % Copy data to a new variable to preserve the orginal array
B(:,1) = B(:,1)...; some calculation

thank you for your answer, i see this error when i try that method
% Error using horzcat
% Dimensions of arrays being
% concatenated are not
% consistent.
