How do I save a file name as a string? hFig is the Figure I want to save and str is the name I want to save this figure as. When I run it i get the below message:
Error using saveas (line 96)
str = 'ERP_GRP_1'
saveas(hFig, fullfile(path, [str '.jpeg']));

saveas(hfig,[directoryPath, str, '.jpeg'])
directoryPath is the string with ending in fileseperator / or \ depending on your OS. If your directory path string doesn't end in it you may include filesep() in the brackets.

If you have r2020b or later you should use exportgraphics().
And you should not use JPG format unless you're willing to have horrible jpeg compression artifacts.
str = 'ERP_GRP_1';
% Create filename with folder prepended.
folder = pwd; % Or whatever you want.
fullFileName = fullfile(folder, [str, '.png']);
% Save hFig
