I want to save result of a function in a different directory. But the fne name needs to be changed as i am storing results for different cases in a for loop.
cas={'a','b','c','d','e','f','g'};
save(cas{dataset},'result','ORDER');
by doing this i am able to save result of different in the same directory with different names.
I would like to know if there is a way to do the same, but in a different folder.

Hi! You can do this by using the full file path in your file name. For example:
filename=strcat('C:\Users\katie\Documents\MATLAB\',cas{dataset});%concatenate the file path with your file name
save(filename,'result','ORDER')
Above, ''C:\Users\katie\Documents\MATLAB\'' is my file path.
With strcat, you can input as many strings as you would like to be concatenated. So, if you wanted to save each result into a different folder, you could set up your filename in such a way to do it:
filename=strcat('C:\Users\katie\Documents\MATLAB\',foldername{dataset},'\',cas{dataset},'.mat');

To generate filenames it is recommended to use fullfile rather than concatenating strings:
filename = fullfile('C:\Users\katie\Documents\MATLAB',cas{dataset}))
