Hi all, I have a date number , say 40667. When I am using datestr in matlab , it gives me 5 May, however I have the same number 40667 in excel sheet, when I use the date cell format(by clicking right->format cells-> date) , it gives me 4 May. However as far as I know the 4 May should be the right one. does anybody know why Matlab does not gives me the same result? and why there is mismatch between Matlab and Excel? Appreciated !

>> datestr( 40667, 'yyyy-mm-dd HH:MM:SS' ) ans = 0111-05-05 00:00:00
Start of time with Matlab is year 0 and with Excel 1900. See documentation.
Thanks per isakson. I got that point and I searched and found "x2mdate" function which will solve the date conversion for me. But now I have problem using this function . Actually I am reading dates from Excel sheet using xlsread. the result will be cell or double : [num,txt,data]=xlsread(filepath); where num is double and data is cell. however the "x2mdate" gives me error for using cell or double formats:
here is my code:
MATLABDate = x2mdate(xx,1);
and it gives me following error:
Undefined function 'x2mdate' for input arguments of type 'double'
Any help would be appreciated!
