When trying to call xlsread, I get the warning:
Warning: Could not start Excel
server for import, ‘basic’ mode
will be used. Refer to HELP
XLSREAD for more information.
The helpfile suggests to me because I am running OSX, I do not have an excel COM server running which results in this warning. I’d like to either find a solution or confirm that it is irresolvable.
Specifications: I’m running MATLAB R2011a and OS X Lion.
There are two main options:
Upgrade to R2012b, which allows reading sheets and ranges in Excel files on all platforms
Use any of the (somewhat involved) approaches discussed in this post of Undocumented Matlab
