Produce a Date vector starting with a desired date

1 view (last 30 days)
Dear all, I am trying to produce a date vector, which includes year and month I would like to start With July 1926, and end with December 2014. Optimally, the format should be YYYYMM.
Thank you very much in advance!

This seems to work:
date1 = datenum('192607','yyyymm');
date2 = datenum('201412','yyyymm');
datev = date1:(365.25/13):date2;
result = unique(datestr(datev, 'yyyymm'),'rows');
sample = result(1:24,:) % Sample Output

d1='192607'
d2='201412'
dd1=datenum(d1,'yyyymm')
dd2=datenum(d2,'yyyymm')
out=datestr(dd1:dd2,'yyyymm')

Dear Azzi, thank you very much! I followed your instructions, and get the following output:
192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192607 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192608 192609 192609 192609 192609 192609 192609 192609 192609
The problem is that '192607' is repeating 30 times, for each day of the months, but I am looking for the following format: 192607 192608 192609 ...
Thank you very much!
