I am trying to search for all the xlsx files inside a folder that have many subfolders to search from. I realize matlab does not search inside subfolders. So I tried this:
>> addpath(genpath('D:/'))
>> savepath
>> dir *.xlsx
but it is not working, please advice on what I can do. I want to make a code that works for any folder that I put inside genpath(' '). Thanks!

Attached is a new script that works with the ** capability added in R2016b, which was released after our discussion above.
If you have R2016b or later, you should use this rather than the first script I gave in my Answer.

i dont recommend adding folders to matlab's path, casually like this
as lots of users reported above, new versions of matlab support the following command dir('**/*.mat');
However, old versions of matlab don't support this
instead of writing a large code, inspect the structure field "isfield" and so on, you could just easily ask DOS (or the command prompt) to do it for you. the output from MS-DOS isn't formatted, so you need to split the one block string to separate lines
newline = char(10); %char(10) is the character for line-break, or "enter"
[~,all_mats] = system('dir /s /b *.xls'); %you can also simply write: !dir /s /b *.xls
all_mats = strsplit(all_mats,newline)';
all_mats(cellfun(@isempty,all_mats))=[]; %the last entry/line might be an empty cell. delete it.
