Which number format is it?
Does the spreadsheet have the values stored as text string or as excel date format?

Using datetime, datenum, or datevec, depending on your need. What have you tried so far?

Aarti Dwivedi il 4 Lug 2018 Assuming that you have already read the values from the Excel sheet in different variables, the number you are looking for is "numd", it can be obtained using:
date_arr = datetime(yyyy,mm,dd,hh,mm,ss)
numd = datenum(date_arr)

Unless you specifically need a datenum, this is almost certainly not the best choice. As Walter says, what number format do you need?
And in any case, in recent versions of MATLAB, you can read dates from Excel directly as datetimes, and it's likely that you do not need to convert them to a "number".

The OP wanted a "number", that's why I provided it. Although I agree with you that it is not the best choice, I put it with datetime as well as datenum so that it would be clear to a MATLAB novice and the OP the difference between the two.
