Hello, please I am trying to import a dataset, which contains observed dates, from excel into MATLAB. The dates are in the format 'dd/mm/yyyy'. Example, 22/01/2021. When I store the column containing the dates under 'Datetime', the data cannot be imported. It can be imported when stored under 'Categorical'. In the latter case, I find it difficult to convert using 'datestr' function. Please, apart from changing the date format in excel before importing (example 22-Jan-2021), is there any other faster way to go about this? Meanwhile, I have thousands of observed dates to work with. Hence converting them 'manually' in excel would be time consumimg. Thanks very much.
