I've been given some data to analyse and the file names are in the following format:
Optowell3956814
Optowell3956814Censoring
Optowell3956814FailTimes
Optowell3956814scantimes
where the number in the middle changes depending on the sample. I want to be able to select all of the files of the form Optowell3956814 and ignore the others. How can I select these?

You can try this:
[filepath,name,ext] = fileparts(YourFileName);
