## Re: Beginners Question - diagram date / values

 Thanks! There is still something wrong. When I execute the line > set (gca (), "xticklabel", datestr(x,'dd.mm.yyyy HH:MM:SS')); I get dates starting at the right point, but only increasing a few minutes for a dataset of three weeks (see https://ibb.co/iiKgC7). Any ideas what is going wrong?
