convert a string into a date and time format

5 views (last 30 days)
Hello, How can I convert this string into a date and time format in matlab. The months will be in spanish and the number of letters may vary for the month. This data will be obtained from different files and it will vary.
m ='October17,196616:41:00'
The result should be date_time= 1996/10/17 16:41:00
Thank you

Try something like this —
m ='October17,196616:41:00';
DT = datetime(m, 'InputFormat','MMMMdd,yyyyHH:mm:ss', 'Format','yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm:ss')
DT = datetime
1966/10/17 16:41:00
