Timestamp Formatting (Datenum Limitation?)

Asked by Kwen
on 19 Jun 2013

If I want a timestmap of the format string such that 'mm/dd/yy HH:MM:SS PM' is my format into matlab's numerical number,

datenum(01/01/13,'mm/dd/yy HH:MM:SS PM')

only displays the general number associated with the date and not the time. How do I correct this to get the full number with decimals indicating the time as well?

datenum('01/01/13 03:12:45 PM','mm/dd/yy HH:MM:SS PM');


datenum({'01/01/13 03:12:45 PM','01/02/13 06:12:45 AM'},'mm/dd/yy HH:MM:SS PM')

Sorry that was a typo in my question, but not in my code. This runs for this specific date only, but errors on a vector.
