Hello every one, please help me in solving this issue
I have thousands of mat files as shown in figure for sample. Each mat file contains a variable called ‘val’ which is 2 by 19000 matrices. What I need is to extract the first raw of ‘val’ of each dot mat file and save it by naming sequentially like “x1, x2, x3……..” Using for loop.
I have done for a single file successfully by the following algorithm
>> clear all
>> load('dist (1).mat')
>> x = val(1,:);
>> save('x1.mat', 'x')
I have attached some of the dot mat files
Thanks so much in advance for your help

Wouldn't it be better to extract what you want into a single matrix and then just save the one matrix with all the data rather than having thousands of separate files? Having said that, a basic framework for doing what you want is:
numberOfFiles= %enter number of files;
for iter=1:numberOfFiles
fName=sprintf('dist (%d).mat',iter);
save(fName, 'x');
