I have
day = datetime(2008,04,01)
with the output
day =
datetime
01-Apr-2008
I then run
string(day)
with the output
ans =
"01-Apr-2008"
But I want to have a string "20080401." Is there any simple way to do this?

Ise the 'Format' name-value pair —
dayv = datetime(2008,04,01, 'Format','yyyyMMdd')
dayv = datetime
20080401
string(dayv)
ans = "20080401"
.

Again, use 'Format'
datelimits = datetime({'20080401', '20080402'}, 'InputFormat', 'yyyyMMdd', 'Format','yyyyMMdd')
datelimits = 1×2 datetime array
20080401 20080402
.
