I can't parse from the post precisely which form it is you have--text or
datenum but since if it were already text it would seem your problem
would be solved I'll presume you have a datenum something like

>> dn=datenum(1998,12,24,3,48,5.698);
>> sprintf('%4d-%2.2d-%2.2dT%2.2d:%2.2d:%06.3f',datevec(dn))

ans =
1998-12-24T03:48:05.698
>>

doc sprintf % and friends for formatting
