Hi all, thank you for those of you who have answered my question below.
I have a slightly different question but still does not know how to achieve this.
Again, I want to create a matrix containing all possible combination. Example of this is shown below. The size of the matrix depends on the number of variable n and the total of combination should follow the . The example below is valid for and, hence, the total number of rows is 8. The value of each element is 1 and -1.
How to create this matrix automatically depending on the number of variable n?

y=dec2bin([7 4 2 1])-'0';
y(y==0)=-1;
z =[y; flipud(y)]
This only works for this particular example. If you want a generalised answer, give more examples.

Because only this combination corresponds to the desired result.
That's why I mentioned - "This only works for this particular example. If you want a generalised answer, give more examples"

You could take the answer from your previous question, subtract 0.5 and multiply by 2. Your accepted answer was
n = 3;
m = dec2bin(0:pow2(n)-1)-'0' % limited precision
m = 8×3
0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 1 0 1 1 1
which then becomes
n = 3;
m = dec2bin(0:pow2(n)-1)-'0'; % limited precision
m = 2*(m-0.5)
m = 8×3
-1 -1 -1 -1 -1 1 -1 1 -1 -1 1 1 1 -1 -1 1 -1 1 1 1 -1 1 1 1

dec2bin creates a CHAR vector, while -'0' converts it to a double again. This indirection costs some time. The direct approach:
n = 3;
m = rem(floor((0:2^n-1).' ./ 2 .^ (0:n-1)), 2)
m = 8×3
0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 0 1 0 1 1 1 1 1
pool = [1, -1]; % Arbitrary values
result = pool(m + 1) % Add 1 to use m as index
result = 8×3
1 1 1 -1 1 1 1 -1 1 -1 -1 1 1 1 -1 -1 1 -1 1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1

This is not creating the desired output as per the figure. The combination is different.
