Those are my codes;

you have 5 m for the month field but datestr only permits up to 4 m

We highly recommend using datetime in place of datestr, now, datenum, etc.
You can get a datetime version of the same value using datetime('now') and convert it to a text representation using the string function.
e.g.
dt = datetime('now','Format','MMMM dd, yyyy hh:mm:ss.SSS a')
dt = datetime
July 14, 2021 05:07:08.084 PM
txt = string(dt)
txt = "July 14, 2021 05:07:08.084 PM"
