Hey I got this
hund = datetime(end_stamp, 'convertfrom','posixtime')
% which give this:
Because this one hit time 00:00:00 and I use datestr i get this:
hund = datestr(hund)
hund = '05-Nov-2018'
But I need to get the exact line as a string:
hund = '05-Nov-2018 00:00:00'
Anyone have an idea ?
Rather than using deprecated DATESTR, it is much better to stick with the DATETIME object itself:
t = datetime('03-Nov-2018 00:00:00','InputFormat','dd-MMM-yyyy HH:mm:ss')
t.Format = 'dd-MMM-yyyy HH:mm:ss'
