I've been lurking the boards the last few weeks hoping to find an answer to this problem but no avail. Here's my issue: when I use xlswrite, xlswrite isn't saving Excel files to my computer like it should. Instead of saving, for instance, when I use xlswrite('hi.xlsx',1234) to write the integer 1234 to 'hi.xlsx', Matlab will literally open up a new, unsaved Excel file with the following text:
1234 hi.xlsx hi.xlsx hi.xlsx hi.xlsx hi.xlsx hi.xlsx hi.xlsx
No matter how many iterations or changes I make to xlswrite, it always shows up something like that, where it will repeat the name of the file beneath the matrix I pass to xlswrite, and never saves anything. It's really frustrating when I'm trying to write a few hundred Excel files and have to go in by hand to do it.
Let me know if anyone has seen this before or has any solutions. xlswrite worked fine before, and sometimes it still does work fine, but more often it glitches like this.
No products are associated with this question.

I may have found the error...I was searching my computer for "xlswrite" and realized there was another version of xlswrite that a colleague was using on my external harddrive (which I set to Matlab's path)...it must have been using this version whenever I had my external harddrive connected.
Sorry for the confusion, the problem is fixed!
