I was previously using 3 xlsread functions, and I realized this probably wasn't the best way to go about it. I was reading some data from tables, so using xlsread, I was able to specify what cells I want read (in this case, B2:P14). How would I do something similar in matlab (because table/array size may vary, how would I just go about getting all data located after (2,2), instead of from (2,2) to (14,16), for example)?

V=xlsread('file.xlsx')
out=V(2:end,2:end)

There is no guarantee whatsoever that V(2, 2) corresponds to cell B2 of the excel file. Since xlsread trims empty rows and columns V(2, 2) may be C3 or even AZ1500.

Yea I know, the excel spreadsheets are formatted ahead of time by people using the code, so that shouldn't be an issue. Thanks for the heads up.
