write a cell array to an excel file

I tried to write a huge cell array with variable number of elements in each cell to excel sheet with xlswrite (filename,matrix) but the sheet was empty. So I tried a small piece of code to write a cell array to excel file. The code searches for the cell that has the maximum number of elements (say N) and appends ones (N-number of elements in cell,1) to each cell. I used ones, it can be something else. Once the sheet is written, I do a ctrl+F to remove the ones from the sheet.
This code saved me a lot of time to copy each cell content from matrix to excel sheet.
Can someone please tell me if there is a better way to write an cell array to excel?
