Hi, I want to load a struct and the name of the struct is for example 'abc' and after that i want to load some fields of the struct like
data_array(1) = abc.data_1
data_array(2) = abc.data_2
but now my problem is that the struct isn't allways called abc...
so i want to use the name of the struct however it's called to load data_1 and data_2 in this case

Hi Jan,
it is good practice to load external data into a structure array such that the variable name is connected to the actual function/script whereas the top fieldname is the name of the saved struct. Then, you can use fieldnames()-command to retrieve the name of the loaded struct and continue work on that.
inputStruct = load(myFilename) % load file
fieldsInputStruct = fieldnames(inputStruct) % retrieve the name of the saved struct
inputStruct.(fieldsInputStruct{1}) % use dynamic expressions to address the fieldnames
See for more information:
Kind regards,

Assuming only one variable per MAT file:
C = struct2cell(load(..))
M = C{1}
