I need to import the following sheet from excel:
Then I want to move every value in column C to columns D, E and F based on results of string searches.
For example, I want to search column B (description) for 'gas' inside each cell and if it is present, move corresponding value in C (Value) to column D.
The same for strings 'Restaurant' and 'Hotel'. Note that the search should be case insensitive and matlab should take my parameter as an incomplete string, ie, imagine there was a Description HotelHereNow, then matlab should find it using parameter 'hotel'.
Of course this is just an example, real database is about 2000x10.
What is the best way to import the excel sheet: table, cell array? How can I search and move?

For the searching part:
B_lower = lower(B); %to lowercase
contains_gas = ~cellfun(@isempty, strfind(B_lower, 'gas'));
D(contains_gas) = C(contains_gas);
for the reading part: readtable() would probably be good. You would then probably modify what I wrote above, to be (for example)
B_lower = lower(YourTable.Description); %to lowercase
contains_gas = ~cellfun(@isempty, strfind(B_lower, 'gas'));
YourTable.Gas(contains_gas) = YourTable.Value(contains_gas);

B_lower_descript = cellfun(@lower, sheet(:,2), 'Uniform', 0);
