Save Monte Carlo output

This is probablly a silly question, and I'm missing the obvious, but how does one save the output of monte carlo iterations, without overwiritng the previous iteration? For example, one MC run returns the following:
ExpoStart(column)=row; % a row vector
I have a long code subject to a Monte Carlo that looks something like this:
nsamples=500; %500 monte carlo iterations
for i=1:nsamples
hlm = unifrnd(6,9.7); %1st variable going through MC
hlfm = unifrnd(3.9,5.9); %2nd variable going through MC
for column = (1:ncolumn) %start of pharma-mondel loop
for t = 1:timesteps
% here is a long pharma-mondel, not included for simplicity
ExpoStart(column)=row; % pharma-mondel output from one iteration of monte carlo
end %end of pharma-mondel loop
%this is were I beleive there should be a line saving the "ExpoStart(column)" for each of...
%the 500 iteration of the monte carlo, but I'm not sure how to do this with without overwriting the last iteration.
I imagine the output being 500 rows of ExpoStart(column), with each row being output from sequential monte carlo iterations....but how to code this...?
Thanks you in advance for any suggestions/ help you maybe able to provide!

Change the line
And (I think) it will do what you want. There is an argument for pre-allocating the array in advance rather than have Matlab continually grow it on the fly, but if it's not really big, I wouldn't worry over it too much.
