Convert datetime into seperate columns

2 views (last 30 days)
I have a CSV table that I load in Matlab and looks as follows (see below). I would like to separate the datetime column into separate values in the form of a double array, with 1 column for 'year', 1 column for 'month', and 1 column for 'day', something like:
2020 | 07 | 20
2020 | 07 | 20
The hour is not important. How can I do this? I attach the CSV file which can be loaded as:
seawatertemp_westhinder = readtable('seawatertemp_westhinder.csv');

In one line to get a double array:
[y,m,d] = ymd(seawatertemp_westhinder.times);
% Add to table
seawatertemp_westhinder.year= y
seawatertemp_westhinder.month = m d
