This is a working function that gets the min, average, max of numbers with a specific row thershold however if i wanted to get an 'NaN' if the txt file or specfic column does not exist, how would I do that?
function res = columnStatistics(fPath, cat, cName)
fConn = fopen(fPath, 'r');
firstLine = fgetl(fConn);
new = [];
while ~feof(fConn)
cLine = fgetl(fConn);
Y = strsplit(firstLine, ',');
X = ismember(Y, cName);
V = find(X);
parts = strsplit(cLine, ',');
O = str2double(parts(V));
tru = strcmp(cat, parts{1});
if (tru)
new(end+1) = O;
res = [NaN];
minData = min(new);
aveData = mean(new);
maxData = max(new);
final = [minData, aveData, maxData];
res = final;

You posted a question about labeling bars in alphabetic order, but deleted the question before my response made it up.
I post it here as the answer is not obvious.
Generalizing it to alphabetic when there was more than 26 possibilities was a bit tricky.
You should consider using categorical data for your x axis.
yData = (randi(9, 1, 30));
W = max(yData);
U = W + 5;
myFig = gcf;
myAx = axes(myFig);
myPlot = bar(myAx, yData);
myPlot.FaceColor = 'flat';
myAx.XTick = 1:length(yData);
myAx.YLim = [0 U];
myAx.Title.String = 'Data Visualization';
myAx.YLabel.String = 'Value';
myAx.XLabel.String = 'Category';
for i = 1:length(yData)
temp = dec2base(i-1,26);
temp(1:end-1) = temp(1:end-1) - 1;
myLab = blanks(length(temp));
mask = temp <= '9';
myLab(mask) = char(temp(mask) - '0' + 'A');
myLab(~mask) = char(temp(~mask) + 10);
myAx.XAxis.TickLabels{i} = myLab;

Hey Benjamin,
Check out textscan function, it is useful in the same scenerio as you are interested in. This will help you fill up empty places in the data.
I hope this helps.
