I have a small test table and I try to replace a column (or row) with the same size string. I just get NaN out of it. I would like to replace the table colum from (1,2,3,4,5) to type_1, type_2 etc. where the column names are in a 5x1 string. How can I do this? And how would it change for rows as well? Thanks

try this:
Column1Names={'type_1';'type_2';'type_3';'type_4';'type_5'};
% making another table
LastName = {'Sanchez';'Johnson';'Li';'Diaz';'Brown'};
Age = [38;43;38;40;49];
Height = [71;69;64;67;64];
Table2 = table(LastName,Age,Height)
Table2 = 5×3 table
LastName Age Height ___________ ___ ______ {'Sanchez'} 38 71 {'Johnson'} 43 69 {'Li' } 38 64 {'Diaz' } 40 67 {'Brown' } 49 64
Table2.LastName=Column1Names
Table2 = 5×3 table
LastName Age Height __________ ___ ______ {'type_1'} 38 71 {'type_2'} 43 69 {'type_3'} 38 64 {'type_4'} 40 67 {'type_5'} 49 64
Or
Table2(:,1)=Column1Names
Table2 = 5×3 table
LastName Age Height __________ ___ ______ {'type_1'} 38 71 {'type_2'} 43 69 {'type_3'} 38 64 {'type_4'} 40 67 {'type_5'} 49 64
