I'm writing a function that allows users to input a filename to load that file. I'm going to use this function multiple times in GUI checkboxes so that a user can choose which files they want to pull up. The problem is, I can't figure out how to tell users what variable they should be entering. This is what I have so far (only the first few lines).
function [ output_args ] = loadExcel( Name )
inputdlg('Please enter the name for the' Name 'xls file: ','Excel Name');
Is there a way for me to plug in the variable for "Name" into my inputdlg string?

Try this:
inputdlg(['Please enter the name for the' Name 'xls file: '],'Excel Name');

Yo can use pietro's answer or strcat but I find sprintf to be a lot more readable for this. It's also a lot more flexible as you can have strings, characters, numbers, currencies, etc. inserted in your string in a well defined way:
inputdlg(sprintf('Please enter the name for the %s xls file: ', Name), 'Excel Name');
