I need to write a standalone GUI application using R2010b (specified by customer, I would be happe to use a newer version...).
I would like to include at least one configuration file in Excel format (*.xlsx) to give the user some flexibility to configure the tool (e.g. labels of measurement quantitities which change over time). I would like the user to be able to change this file in place and the tool shall use the changed file when the tool ist started next. I want to avoid that the file is stored outside my distributed directory and that the user needs to specify where it is (at least) the first time the tool ist started.
I am able to include the xlsx-file in my code such that the compiled version works correctly and obviously uses it. However, the file is not to be found in the directory distrib created by the compiler. It ssems to be included in the *.exe.
Is it possible to do what I want? If yes - how? If not - is it at least possible to include a template file for the xlsx which the user can get from the distributed directory without having to add it manually each time I create a new version of the tool?
