Hello!
I have a code that read a xls file and get a colum of dates:
data_even ---- 60x1 cell
' 31/10/2012'
' 31/10/2012'
' 01/11/2012'
' 01/11/2012' .....
I want to compare some dates, so i need to convert it using datenum() and when i return to string for my conference i see a diferece way to show the date, take a look:
>> x = datenum(data_even)
13608
13608
734879
734879
>> y = datestr(x,'dd/mm/yyyy')
03/04/0037
03/04/0037
11/01/2012
11/01/2012
Someone help me please.
I try to convert the data_even vector to string from a cell and here the result:
>> datestr(data_even,'dd/mm/yyyy')
03/04/0037
03/04/0037
11/01/2012
11/01/2012
the same problem occurs!

>> data_even = {' 31/10/2012'
' 31/10/2012'
' 01/11/2012'
' 01/11/2012'};
>> x = datenum(data_even,'dd/mm/yyyy')
x =
735173
735173
735174
735174
>> y = datestr(x,'dd/mm/yyyy')
y =
31/10/2012
31/10/2012
01/11/2012
