Description David Lawrence 2005-03-30 18:28:24 EST
As instructed from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=121838

puting this bug report here to Fedora Legacy.

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.

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. This was actually fully fixed in OpenOffice.org 1.1.2 according
to http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=24082

------- Additional Comments From jkeating@j2solutions.net 2004-10-16 07:40:40 ----

While this is an annoying bug, it is not a Security related bug, and thus not
suitable for Fedora Legacy.  If at such time we need to do a security fix on
OO.org, please remind us to fix this issue as well.
