I have a bunch of tables saved within a cell, each table with two columns. How do i extract each table from the cell?
The table is attached.

s = struct with fields:
Tables: {[1512×2 table] [1512×2 table] [1512×2 table] [1512×2 table] [1512×2 table] [1512×2 table] [1512×2 table]}
% i-th tables
i = 1;
t = s.Tables{i}
t = 1512×2 table

T = cellfun(@table2array,Tables,'UniformOutput',false) ;
iwant = cell2mat(T') ;

Tables{1}
Tables{2}
and so on.
If you wanted to put the results together into a cell array so that you could work with this in a loop or something like that... then the cell array would be exactly the same as what you already have.
I have the suspicion that you want to extract them into individual variables and that you want that done automatically no matter how many entries are in the cell. If so... don't . http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/304528-tutorial-why-variables-should-not-be-named-dynamically-eval
If you are fixed to exactly 7 entries, then you could use
[T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6, T7] = Tables{:};
... but you probably shouldn't... at least not unless you have better names available. Perhaps
[flux_monday, flux_tuesday, flux_wednesday, flux_thursday, flux_friday, flux_saturday, flux_sunday] = Tables{:};
Something like that would be reasonable.
