I am writing a matrix to text using the following codes:
fid = fopen('Datav1Call_1993.txt','w+');
for idx = 1:size(DataPaper,1)
line = DataPaper(idx,~isnan(DataPaper(idx,:))); % creates the line of data without NaNs
fprintf(fid,[repmat('%d ',1,length(line)),'\n'],line);
how can i add headers to the columns?

Write 'em before the loop after you open the file...result will likely be more satisfactory for looking at if you use widths on the field specifications to line things up...

For example, after fopen() and before the loop:
if fid == -1
errorMessage = sprintf('Error opening Datav1Call_1993.txt')
return; % Bail out
% Now write header string.
fprintf(fid, 'header 1 header 2 header 3 whatever \n');

Dimensions of matrices being concatenated are not consistent.
Yes, the triple dots are needed Danielle. With them it's like ['first', 'second', 'last'] which equals 'firstsecondlast', a single 1-d character array. Without them it tries to make a 2D array and for that to succeed, all strings need to be the same length because you can't have a 2-D array with a ragged right edge. However this demo works:
s1 = ['first', ...
'second', ...
s2 = ['first-',
You get
s1 =
s2 =
Note you get a 1-D character array for the first and a 2-D array for the second. I padded the strings so that all strings had 6 characters so now it can make a 3 by 6 character array.
