Conversion of string containing "AM" or "PM" to datetime

74 views (last 30 days)
Given the string
str = "4/21/2022 8:48:40 AM"
I want to convert it to a datetime
datetime
21-Apr-2022 08:48:40
However, using
d = datetime(str, "InputFormat", "MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:SS")
gives an error, while
d = datetime(str, "InputFormat", "MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:SS a")
gives
datetime
21-Apr-2022 00:48:00
what is not what I want or even expect (hours and seconds both set to zero).
