notebook

Open MATLAB Notebook in Microsoft Word software (on Microsoft Windows platforms)

Syntax

notebook
notebook('filename')
notebook('-setup')

Description

notebook starts Microsoft® Word software and creates a new MATLAB® Notebook titled Document 1.

notebook('filename') starts Microsoft Word and opens the notebook filename, where filename is either in the MATLAB current folder or is a full path. If filename does not exist, MATLAB creates a new notebook titled filename. If the file name extension is not specified, MATLAB assumes .doc.

notebook('-setup') runs an interactive setup function for MATLAB Notebook. It copies the notebook template, m-book.dot, to the Microsoft Word template folder, whose location MATLAB automatically determines from the Windows® system registry. Upon completion, MATLAB displays a message indicating whether or not the setup was successful.
