I have a table whose first column is a timestamp in the format 08-Jan-2016 05:40:00. How do I convert it into numbers?
Wanted output: 20160108054000.
I know the function yyyymmdd(X) is useful but I also need the time to be added.
Thanks!

dt = datestr(now,'yyyymmddHHMMSS')
dt = '20220403132156'

Avoid using older legacy functions like datestr and datenum. Use the more modern types like datetime to work with timestamped data.
@Lu Da Silva Could you share a code example to demonstrate what you are seeing. This way people can run that on their MATLAB and suggest possible solutions instead of trying to guess what the problem could be.

Although datetime does provide more precision than datenum (and requires more memory), this precision is not needed by most applications. Also, you will note that the dir command outputs the datenum for files.

txt = '08-Jan-2016 05:40:00'
txt = '08-Jan-2016 05:40:00'
dtn = datetime(txt,'InputFormat','d-MMM-y H:m:s', 'Format','yyyyMMddHHmmss')
dtn = datetime
