I wonder how to get MATLAB read an event file (generated by Neuroscan) in MATLAB. I tried load, csvread, dlmread. None worked. The data includes 5 columns of numbers and one column of words. I do not need the words, though. I can open it by notepad or export it to excel and then apply text to column. Thank you.

See if importdata (link) or readtable (link) will work.
