If I understand the question correctly, this should work :
Month_variable = datestr(datenum('Oct_01_2019'),'mm');
I hope it helps !

Dear Gupta:
Thanks so much. Your help solved my whole day probelm. I can not appreciate more.
One more followup, if i want to extract both month and year, will i just add 'yyyy' right after 'mm'?.
