Hello,
date=0002042013; end_date=0802042013;
I need to create a loop that starts with the date and finish date in this end_data after running hour by hour!
I thought I would create multiple loops, but that's not very nice, I think there is a specific function but do not know which. I will be very grateful for any help.

It is not clear, what "date=0002042013" exactly means. Number do not have a leading zero, strings need surrounding quotes.

Not sure if this is the range you wanted, but you can change start and end date to what you like
start_date='2/04/2013 0:00'; end_date='2/04/2013 8:00';
hr_step=datenum(0,0,0,1,0,0);
%use matlab datenums
date_array=datenum(start_date):hr_step:datenum(end_date);
cellstr(datestr(date_array)) % display in date format
Also, do not use "date" as a variable name. It is a function in matlab to return the current date
date()

cellstr(datestr(date_array,'HHmmddyyyy'))
I think that's what you want where HH is the two digit military hour
