My apologies, I put you on the wrong track, xlswrite doesn't work with jod
interface yet.

Better try the same with odswrite:
odswrite ('HSTM_Output.ods', sum(H1_CC1_CL4_FiringsUnits), 'H1', 'A7',

(I'm busy -at slow pace- to integrate the various .ods, .xls and .xlsx
interfaces to save on lots of duplicate code maintenance. When that's
released there's no more difference between xlswrite and odswrite.  I have
it working here so that's why I overlooked this basic thingy.)

FWIW, cell2csv works a lot faster than any of the spreadsheet interfaces
