Hi, I am using Matlab on a library computer at my Uni where they have version R2016a. Whenever I am trying to read in my excel workbook for a path using xlsread I receive an error message saying
Columns 1 through 2
'This package uses the Matlab command xlsread to read from Excel files.' 'This command appeared for the first time in Matlab 6. Your version of Matlab is older than version 6.'
'You must modify the file DSGEReadExcel.m or BVARReadExcel.m to read in data etc in some other way. Or upgrade Matlab ...'
This is strange since it is version 9.0 ie R2016a
Could anyone please help?

I reckon you have installed some third party packages which are shadowing the "xlsread" function. Execute the following command to see if the function is shadowed:
which -all xlsread
The output should look like:
If you have different output, you would need to rename the shadowed function. Alternatively, you can restore the MATLAB path using:
This will remove all the third party toolboxes and support packages. If you would like to save this default configuration, use:
