Now A is a table with the first column has the date data. (not a variale)
Please advise how to proceed in this general case.
for each row, take a difference between every possible pair of two elements in the row and returns the maximum difference
In a simpler case where A is a matrix, if A= [1 3 6 7 10], then B=[9].

In order to find out the maximum difference between two elements in a row vector, you can first sort it and then take the difference between the last and the first element.
vec = sort(A);
B = vec(end)-vec(1);
Hope this helps :)


The point is that they are in a table, not in a matrix.

result = max(A{:,2:end},[],2)-min(A{:,2:end},[],2)
