Description Tomasz Kepczynski 2003-09-17 11:01:29 UTC
Description of problem:
The only format in which dates can be entered into cell in spreadsheet is
MM/DD/YYYY which is confusing for people outside US. Date entry format should be
set from current locale settings or should be setable in preferences.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter a date in for example Polish format (DD-MM-YYYY) under Polish locale
2. Set display format to the same setting as above
3. Month and day are swaped.
Actual results:
Invalid date entered and displayed.

Expected results:
Valid date entered.

Additional info:
Tested on Redhat 9 and openoffice from the distribution. Third party oo (1.0.1)
under RH7.3 is also broken.
