I have a datatime string which looks like so:
datatime_str='2020-08-18 16:48:13.722422+00:00'
I then do in matlab 2018a:
fmt_dt='yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSSSSS+HH:mm';
datetime(datatime_str,'TimeZone','local','Format',fmt_dt);
and I get:
2020-08-18 00:00:13.722422+00:00
I am not sure what it is that I am doing wrong, but the result is obviously wrong :(
Any help would be great
Sonia

fmt_dt='yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSSSSSZ';
Also, as noted in the comments, Format should be replaced by InputFormat
