I am trying to create a character array for it to print a certain color out if a random wavelength is input, and it is giving me an error saying "Variable Spectrum has an incorrect value: You have not, or incorrectly, accounted for one of the colors. Incorrect spelling or capitalization could be a problem"
value = wavelength;
Spectrum = 'violet , blue , green , yellow , orange , red , Not Visible';
if value >= 400 && value <450
fprintf ('violet');
elseif value >=450 && value < 490
fprintf ('blue');
elseif value >=490 && value <560
fprintf ('green');
elseif value >=560 && value <590
fprintf ('yellow');
elseif value >=590 && value < 635
fprintf ('orange');
elseif value >=635 && value <=700
fprintf ('red');
else
fprintf ('Not Visible');
end

Is this your entire code? I am unable to reproduce the error at my end. This code worked perfectly.
Provide the entire code and steps you followed to reproduce the error.

You did not emit newlines after the color names.
