error while using "from file" block in SIMULINK

26 views (last 30 days)
i am using "from file" block in simulink. the time stamp in the file starts from 0 and ends at0.2 sec(nondecreasing). but simulink is showing the follwing error.
"Time values must be monotonically non-decreasing." what should i do? if i use some other similar file, this problem is not there.

In case this is a very individual issue, I suggest contacting Technical Support and provide your files.
I have one suggestion for troubleshooting. Load your file into the MATLAB workspace and then test your time variable (assuming t)
t=[1 2 3 4 6 5 7 8] % test data with an artifical issue
[test, ix]=find(diff(t)<0)
ix return a position were the data is nondecreasing

I would expect that an empty time vector is seen as nonincreasing. The root cause may be a very differnt one then. WHY is the time variable empty?

As Andreas suggest, load your MAT file in MATLAB and re-order the data so that the time values are monotonically increasing. You'll probably find that sortrows is useful for that. Once you have re-ordered your data, save it to a different MAT file and use that file with the From File block.

But the time vector needs to be in ascending order, you can't "go back" in time. How was the file generated?
