I tried many times to import a file with textscan, but there's always some problem. i.e. the data didnt display correctly.
Here is a few rows of my data, its actually not complicated
Station,East,North,Zinv,ResInv,Res0,Rerr0,dzW,Rerr,Rsns
"From RSTEMINV v3.30e Date:02/02/12 Time:10:26:56"
0,0,0,0,4.6440E+0,4.8214E+0,500,2,8.89,81.89
0,0,0,-2.5,4.6440E+0,4.8214E+0,500,2,8.89,81.89
0,0,0,-7.82,5.0684E+0,5.4622E+0,500,1,8.84,35.03
0,0,0,-13.82,6.1425E+0,6.6325E+0,500,1,12.56,49.84
0,0,0,-20.589,8.3816E+0,8.4243E+0,500,1,13,32.51
0,0,0,-28.223,1.1675E+1,1.0656E+1,500,1,15.36,23.87
and my code is
fid=fopen('TEM1D1_1.m1d');
A=textscan(fid,'%u',10,'headerline',2);
I dont know why, is it because this file badly formatted?
Anybody would like to give me a hand?
Thanks in advance.

The %u format is only for unsigned integers, but some of your data is signed (negative) and some of it is non-integer.
Use %g not %u
