I have to ask the user to input some data so then I can show to him the image’s referring to the data he gave me however how can I write a script where I tell the user that the data he gave doesn’t exist in the images I have in my possession without appearing the error message from matlab. I think I made the question a little confusing but I hope someone understands and help me because it’s very important. Thank you!

If I understand your question, I think that you may find that you can use MATLAB's errordlg function can do what you are looking for.

To check if a folder exists, where folder is your variable name, and alert the user if the folder does not exist, use isfolder():
if ~isfolder(folder)
errorMessage = sprintf('Error: folder does not exist:\n%s', folder);
To check if a file does not exist and alert the user if the file does not exist, use isfile():
if ~isfile(fullFileName)
errorMessage = sprintf('Error: file does not exist:\n%s', fullFileName);
