I have data for five different years, I need to separate each year separately? what's the best possible way? I tried using datnum command..

12 views (last 30 days)
displaytime = datenum(time)-732313 I used this code and it gives me the data for all five years but I need the data for each year separately.

Okay !! I have five years of data for time for each day of the year, so basically 365*5 columns of data (if that makes sense) I need to separate each year of data separately. for example, I have the data for year 2000,2001,2002,2003 and 2004. I need to create a code to separate them individually.

you should not use datenum but datevec as then the year is stored in the first column
timeVector =datevec(time);
timeYear = timeVector(:,1);
possibleYears = unique(timeYear);
datePerYear = cell(numel(possibleYears));
for ii = possibleYears
datePerYear{ii} = time(timeYear ==ii);
