Hi,
I have below cell array, and I want to calculate the summation of the data in column 3 for matching names in column 1 & column 2. I also want to get the indices of matching rows.
Type Status Rank
Autostable Success 23
Auto Failure 56
Manual Failure 12
Manual Disconnect 45
Manual Success 45
Reinitiate Success 42
Summation of rank if(output1):
Type: Auto OR Autostable
Status:Success
Summation of rank if(Output2):
Type: Auto OR Autostable
Status:Success or Failure
Summation of rank if(Output3):
Type: Auto OR Autostable OR Manual
Status:Success
Summation of rank if(Output4):
Type: Auto OR Autostable OR Manual
Status:Success OR Failure OR Disconnect
Desired Outputs:
Output1:23
Output2:79
Output3:197
Output4:367

Convert your cell arrays into table and use:
Type = {'Autostable' ; 'Auto' ; 'Manual' ; 'Manual' ; 'Manual' ; 'Reinitiate' } ;
Status = { 'Success' ; 'Failure'; 'Failure' ; 'Disconnect' ;'Success' ; 'Success'} ;
Rank = [23 56 12 45 45 42]' ;
T = table(Type,Status,Rank) ;
T(contains(T.(1),'Manual'),:)

In 2016a, the error is: Undefined function 'table' for cell type elements

Sir,
Can we match multiple strings like "Auto" or "Autostable" Scenario2: manual or Auto in the same statement:T(contains(T.(1),'Manual'),:)
