I have in workspace file name as
filev= 'I:\windows\users\me\desktop\data\ex1.csv'
which is imported some how, now I want to use something like
So that it saves ex1.fig file to exact same location as that of imported file with same file name and different extension(Ofcourse).

[path , name , ext] = fileparts(filev);
saveas(gcf , fullfile(path , [name , '.jpg']))
% You can change the path you want to save in

[pathstr,name,ext] = fileparts(filev);
f = fullfile(pathstr,name);
