Hi,
assume you have the cell array{1,1} with a text called "XXXX-adsaads". I want the the portion -adsaads to be removed so that I only get XXXX. How can I do this?

Is the "adsaads" known ahead of time? Or are you wanting to find the part before the first - ? or are you wanting to find the part before the last - in cases where there are multiple - ?

the only thing that is known is that a four or three lettered wording comes before the "-" and after the "-" more words are coming. i want to FILTER out everything that comes after the "-".

trimedcell = regexprep(YourCellArray, '-.*', '', 'once');
