function valid = valid_date(year, month, day)
if nargin <3 && nargin > 3 && year < 1 && month < 1 && month > 13 && ~(isscalar(year) && isscalar(month) && isscalar(day))
valid = false;
else
if (month == 1 || month == 3 || month == 5 || month == 7 || month == 8 || month == 10 || month == 12) && day < 32 && day > 0
valid = true;
elseif (month == 4 || month == 6 || month == 9 || month == 11 ) && day < 31 && day > 0
valid = true;
elseif month == 2 && day < 29 && day > 0
valid = true;
elseif ((mod(year,4) == 0 && ~mod(year, 100) == 0) || (mod(year,4) == 0 && mod(year, 400) == 0)) && month == 2 && day == 29
valid = true;
else
valid = false;
end
end
end

I don't know if it is the source of your error, but you might want to double-check this part of your code ...
if nargin <3 && nargin > 3 ...

Hi,
You should first check for the scalar portion and then for other conditions.
Additionaly, you should also check for:
if nargin <3 && nargin > 3 && year < 1 && month < 1 && month > 13
It will only be true when all the conditions satisfy at the same time. It should be something like:
if nargin <3 || nargin > 3 || year < 1 || month < 1 || month > 13
So the whole code would be:
function valid = valid_date1(year, month, day)
if ~(isscalar(year) && isscalar(month) && isscalar(day)) || nargin <3 || nargin > 3 || year < 1 || month < 1 || month > 13
valid = false;
else
if (month == 1 || month == 3 || month == 5 || month == 7 || month == 8 || month == 10 || month == 12) && day < 32 && day > 0
valid = true;
elseif (month == 4 || month == 6 || month == 9 || month == 11 ) && day < 31 && day > 0
valid = true;
elseif month == 2 && day < 29 && day > 0
valid = true;
elseif ((mod(year,4) == 0 && ~mod(year, 100) == 0) || (mod(year,4) == 0 && mod(year, 400) == 0)) && month == 2 && day == 29
valid = true;
else
valid = false;
end
end
end
