Hi
I get one .csv file in a directory and I cannot control the name of it. Therefore, I want to read it without knowing its name. How can I do it ?

Hello,
You can do so like this (assuming only one csv file):
A = dir('*.csv');
B = csvread(A.name);
Hope this helps!

Use dir('*.csv') to get a list of all csv files in that folder. See the FAQ: http://matlab.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ#How_can_I_process_a_sequence_of_files.3F
