When I try to convert a single structure to array using struct2table() I get an error.
But if I have an array of that structure it works just fine.
Try the following code:
load singleStruct.mat
% This ends up in error
myTBL = struct2table(singleStruct);
disp('I told you this ends up in error.');
% This wont end up in Error
structArray(1) = singleStruct;
structArray(2) = singleStruct;
myTBL = struct2table(structArray);
I have attached the singleStruct.mat for you guys to try.
Any work around?
Well, I usually have an array of those structure, this is really an special case that it is only one.

What is the FULL text of the error message?

You may have already noticed this, but the error is due to having fields with an unequal number of rows. When you pass a scalar structure as input to struct2table(), it expects every row to be a different row in the table. This is problematic if the number of rows for each field varies.
In your provided data, it looks like there are three fields causing this problem: ELEVB, ELEVB_FR, and SNOEB.
One simple workaround is to encapsulate those fields into 1x1 cell arrays.

That's why the parameter exists. Interactively, it would be a pain to type all that. Programmatically, it's a good idea for the reason you cite. It's similar to "always use the DIM argument to the mean function when you are writing a script or function that will be reused."

As this error only occurs with (1x1) structs, there is a simple workaroud. To convert a struct into a table, use the following code:
largeStruct = repmat(struct,2,1);
table = struct2table(largeStruct);
table = table(1,:);
