Description of problem:
There is a bug in OpenOffice.org 1.1.0 that displays dates in April
incorrectly. It is described in qa.openoffice.org at 


An example is typing 4/11 in Calc while in year 2004. The date won't
format correctly, even if you've correctly setup the cell formatting
to Date format. Other years have other dates as problems, example, for
year 2005 it's 4/10.

This has been fixed in OpenOffice.org 1.1.1.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Calc 1.1.0.
2. Enter the date 4/11/04 in Cell A1.
3. Enter the date 4/12/04 in Cell A2.
4. Enter the date 4/13/04 in Cell A3.
5. Enter the date 4/10/05 in Cell A4.
6. Format all cells to date, preferably something easier to read, like
"April 11, 2004".

Actual Results:  The dates 4/11/04 and 4/10/05 are not formatted

Expected Results:  The dates mentioned above should have been
formatted correctly.

Additional info:

This has been fixed in OpenOffice.org 1.1.1, according to the QA link
mentioned above. I am hoping that OpenOffice.org 1.1.1 is released as
an update for FC1 or that, if easy enough, the fix is backported.

Dan, how's this bug going? FC2 users still report it, can it be
repeated in Rawhide? 

Relevant bug from upstream:

Bug initially filed under FC1, so this is now a Legacy issue - Dexter
(bug reporter), please file this at Legacy's bugzilla - bugzilla.fedora.us

Roger dodger. Bug filed for Fedora Legacy at:


with info updating to the link from comment #1 regarding fix as
actually in 1.1.2 and not fully in 1.1.1.
Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2004-12-10 05:54:11 EST
Yeah, this fix is in the 1.1.2 that we now have in fc2/fc2/rawhide,
all should be well on supported releases.
