Removing rows with [] in cell array

Hey everyone,
Clearly my syntax is off. I have seen my a post about this and tried many ways but I keep getting errors, particularly
Error using subsindex
Function 'subsindex' is not defined for values of class
'cell'.
I would like to remove the entire row of data if [] is found in the 3rd column. I read a post that said this error is often returned when I have a variable with a similar name to a matlab function but when I do the following that doesn't seem to be the case.
>> which data
data is a variable.
Here is the final code I tired:
>> data(cellfun(@(x)x(~isempty(x)), data(:,3),'un',0),:)= []
Error using subsindex
Function 'subsindex' is not defined for values of class
'cell'.
Attached is my file! Thank you!
