Hi!
I have 2 questions:
  • Can I have a column in a dataset including two strings? how?
  • I know how I can download a dataset or import it in matlab but I dont know how I can make a dataset when I am computing values of different variables afterwards in my program. How can this be done?
thanks

You cannot do that with dataset(): the string() object will get converted to cell array of character vectors. Run the code I posted

No, dataset() does not support storing string() objects. dataset() automatically converts string() objects to a cell array of character vectors.
foo = ["a", "bc";"de", "f" ]
bar = dataset(foo)
This also shows one way to build a dataset() from computed variables.
I would not recommend any new development for dataset(). I recommend that you switch to table().
