MATLAB: Error converting datetime to month names


I want to convert numbers 1-12 to month names in a text string (January, February, etc…) I was using this:
for m = 1:12
t = datetime(m,m,m)
mon = month(t,'name')
and it was working fine, however I tried this same exact thing and now it is no longer working, I am getting this error: Function 'subsindex' is not defined for values of class 'datetime'.
Does anyone know how to fix this, or another way to do this?

  • In order for that particular error to have occurred, you would have to already have a variable named "month", in which case MATLAB would think you were trying to index that variable using a datetime as the index.
