# Sorting a cell of strings using a certain character position

I have a variable called var=

vart=[{‘Ice011_L_3of3m.mat’’}; {‘Ice011_P_1of3m.mat’} ;{‘Ice011_P_2of3m.mat’}]

We would need to sort the strings in the cell array using the 10th character of each string, so we would get the following result

var_sorted =[{‘Ice011_P_1of3m.mat’}; {‘Ice011_P_2of3m.mat’} ;{‘Ice011_L_3of3m.mat’}]
