Cannot read xls files
14 views (last 30 days)
I'm trying to read a xls file with Matlab (2015b, used in the lab, on a host). I have the following error :
Error using xlsread (line 251)
XLSREAD unable to read sheet 'tab1'.
File could not be read by biffparse. Invalid record ID.
with the command :
And when I try to write, I have :
Warning: Could not start Excel server for export.
XLSWRITE will attempt to write file in CSV format.
I'm quite lost... Thank you Ccile
Sorry for the mistakes.
I don't know if it's better to edit my post or to post an answer so I do both.
I think I found the reason of the error (in my case) : I had a " ' " in the file. I removed it and it was good ^^ Now I just need to check if it's good on the "Monday's Matlab" (I work in two labs...) (no more answer on Monday means it's good ^^)
Thanks for reading, sorry for the mistakes (do not hesitate to correct... by contact if you prefer)
PS How do I close this question ?

You forgot to attach xls_file.xls.
Failing that, about all I can suggest is to not use the 'tab1' argument, or try 'Sheet1' or whatever the worksheet is really called.
