I am very new in programming and therefore it is probably a novice's question. I have to write a script that takes a number of day(dd), month(mm) and year(yyyy)values arranged in three separate columns of a MATLAB variable and gives the day number of the year(e.g. for 03 March 2012, 31+29+3=63) as output.

Can you explain?
Md. Golam Mostafa am 23 Jul. 2015
I have a variable in the workspace containing all the data. Column 1 stores the day(dd), column 2 month (mm) and column 3 year (yyyy). I need to find the day number (for example, for 02/01/2012 day number=2, for 03/03/2012 day number=Jan (31)+ Feb (29)+ Mar (03)=63). The day number is 63. But for 03/03/2013 day number=Jan (31)+ Feb (28)+ Mar (03)=62). I need output of each date in a separate variable.

If you are using R2014b or later, the datetime data type allows you to compute the day of year using the day function:
>> x = [2012 1 2; 2012 3 3; 2013 3 3]
x =
2012 1 2
2012 3 3
2013 3 3
>> d = datetime(x)
d =
02-Jan-2012
03-Mar-2012
03-Mar-2013
>> day(d,'dayofyear')
ans =
2
63
62

I am running this code but it shows an error of this kind.
??? Undefined function or method 'datetime' for input arguments of type 'double'.
Error in ==> testdaynum1 at 32 d = datetime(YMD);
What is the solution?

Presumably, you are not "using R2014b or later". datetime did not exist prior to that.

x = [2012 1 2; 2012 3 3; 2013 3 3];
d = datenum(x);
out = d - datenum(year(d),1,1) + 1;

help datenum
and then use simple subtraction

Fractional value of days since biginning of the year (0-364.9999):
daysFrac = days(currentTime - datetime(year(currentTime), 1, 1, TimeZone=currentTime.TimeZone))
To get the whole number starting from 1 (i.e. day index):
floor(daysFrac + 1)
