I'm a Matlab newbie. I have an array of strings, for example:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

header = {'Fred', 'Tom'}

When I do:

header(1)

I get 'Fred'

I want to be able to change elements--for example:

header(1) = 'Jill'

But I get this error:

??? Conversion to cell from char is not possible.

I would be very grateful for advice. If it isn't possible to do this, is there some other container I could use for storing and changing strings? The strings will form a header row for matrix columns output to a file. Thanks a lot.
