I need to make a timeseries across three days (7th June - 9th June 2010) - I'm unsure how to include both the time and days across the x-axis?
I think I need to convert into decimal days but I'm unsure on how to do this and combine both days and time.
Seperate timeseries plots need to be made for the mean phosphate and nitrate concentrations in surface and bottom waters, again I'm not sure how to do this!
Any help will be grateful, the excel sheet is attached.

Use the datetime type. plot is already aware of date axes with it.

Use a datetime. When you plot, your data type is honored. You can use xtickformat to format how the data appears.
% Define date and time formats for import
opts = detectImportOptions("CTD12-17.xlsx");
% nice, but not necessary
opts.VariableNamingRule = "preserve";
opts = setvartype(opts,"Time","duration");
opts = setvaropts(opts,"Time","InputFormat","hh:mm:ss","DurationFormat","hh:mm:ss");
% Set datetime format for Date + Time
opts = setvartype(opts,"Date_TimeCombined","datetime");
opts = setvaropts(opts,"Date_TimeCombined","InputFormat","dd/MM/yy HH:mm:ss");
% Load data
data = readtable("CTD12-17.xlsx",opts)
data = 6x7 table
Date Time Date + Time Combined Bottom Water Mean N+N Surface Water Mean N+N Bottom Water Mean P Surface Water Mean P ___________ ________ ____________________ _____________________ ______________________ ___________________ ____________________ 07-Jul-2010 04:55:00 07/07/10 04:55:00 10.24 5.38 0.68 0.43 07-Jul-2010 15:06:38 07/07/10 15:06:38 8.77 3.11 0.64 0.5 07-Jul-2010 22:21:32 07/07/10 22:21:32 9.86 4.84 9.67 0.39 08-Jul-2010 04:12:44 08/07/10 04:12:44 9.86 4.84 0.67 0.39 08-Jul-2010 20:31:47 08/07/10 20:31:47 9.81 4.4 0.71 0.38 09-Jul-2010 02:35:24 09/07/10 02:35:24 10.46 3.43 0.7 0.32
%Plot
plot(data.("Date + Time Combined"),data.("Bottom Water Mean N+N"))

Ah, because the Date+Time column format is incorrect. I specified it as MM/dd/yy but it is actually dd/MM/yy. I've updated and rerun my original post.
