Does anyone know how to check a string in a cell in a table to detect if it is a specific word? For example, I have a table that has a bunch of rows. In each row is 1 word. I want to figure out how often a word appears in the table for a specific column.
My approach was to use a while loop with an if statement that would increase a variable every time the logic returned true. The logic is supposed to return true if the cell in the table is a specific string such as 'Aluminum' or 'plastic'. However, MATLAB does not allow me to use the == operator in a table. Does anyone know if there is a workaround?
My approach that did not work
x = readtable('litterati_processed_data.csv')
otherstuff = otherstuff + 1;
