Hi.
I have a table in my workspace. I would like to create new workspace variable of type - double, with the heading of each table column as the variable name.
For example:
Assuming the table is already loaded into my workspace, I would like a script that automatically creates the variables: A, B, C with the data under the respective columns as values; and the type of the created workspace variable should be double.
Note: I want the script such that it reads the variable names A, B, C dynamically, cos these names could vary in the project.
Thanks

Thanks for your response.
I have a simulink model that gets inputs from the workspace with the 'fromWorkspace' block, which won't take the data from the table.

Hi
You can always access the variable name using the table object. Consider an example below
Height = [71;69;64;67;64];
Weight = [176;163;131;133;119];
T = table(Height,Weight);
tableVar = T.Properties.VariableNames;
The tableVar stores the variable name in a cell array, you can access the value by calling the respective variable from the table object. For example:
>> T.(tableVar{1,1})
ans =
71
69
64
67
64
Hope it will help!
