Say I use uigetfile to get a filename that is in a path not currently part of the matlab path. When I execute the next line of code (load(fileName)), the file will not be loaded since it is not in the current path. How can I go about adding the path (automatically/ without additional user input)? Cheers, Eli

i'm having a problem when using uigetfile in a gui i developed...i have created a pushbutton and in it i have writen: function pushbutton2_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles) % hObject handle to pushbutton2 (see GCBO) % eventdata reserved - to be defined in a future version of MATLAB % handles structure with handles and user data (see GUIDATA) data5=importdata(uigetfile('*')); dd=length(data5(:,1)); and it just doesn't work

@Andreas, What file are you selecting? If you uigetfile the name of the file directly does it work? What is the error message?
