Export uitable's data to a spreadsheet Excel

56 views (last 30 days)
I have designed a GUI which has an uitable and a push button which, when is pressed, allows to export the uitable's data to an Excel spreadsheet. My problem is that I want to add the uitable's headers to the matrix Select which has the numeric values. This matrix is used by the pushbutton callback, as seen below:
htable = uitable(...);
...
SelecY = get(htable,'Data');
Callback of the pushbutton
function hExpExcelCallback(src,evt)
FileName = uiputfile('*.xls','Save as');
xlswrite(FileName,SelecY),
end

You need to do some processing in the case that the table data is all numerical, because the column header is returned in a cell array. The following example uses a uitable, but should apply to the table you have in your GUI as long as you have the handle.
h=uitable('Data',rand(2,3),'ColumnName',{'a','b','c'});
Data=get(h,'Data');
ColumnName=get(h,'ColumnName');
NewData=mat2cell(Data,ones(size(Data,1),1),ones(size(Data,2),1));
CombData=[ColumnName';NewData];
xlswrite(FileName,CombData);
