Thanks again for your answer - nothing to argue about because the matter
I had already read the HSQLDB v2.2 guid that you refer to. And as far as
I can understand the 'yyyy' ought to be as sufficient as 'year'. Here is
a copy that confirms it:
/Table 10.1. TO_CHAR, TO_DATE and TO_TIMESTAMP format elements
RRRR 4-digit year
*YYYY 4-digit year*
YY 2 digit year/
Means that LO-Base shall definitely not stop working if 'yyyy' is used
-- which is also the normal format in most other calculating programs.
And surely it has to do with LibreO(-Base) if it is a feature of HSQLDB
that is embedded in LibreO -- I did load LibreO not HSQLDB.
Go and take a look at your car. The car itself runs perfectly well
without a steering wheel and the seats, but you as the user (driver) do
need them; that is why they are installed (embedded) in the car.
You did not focus on my main issue: /_how to get a correct calculation
Now you are wasting not only your time but also mine.
I remain waiting

The problem has nothing to do with LibreOffice. It is a built-in function of
the HSQL database engine. I am sure that it is designed to work like this.
'yyyy' is not a valid argument for the datediff function.
This is the home page of that software: http://hsqldb.org/
Version 2.2 is documented here: http://hsqldb.org/doc/guide/
Version 1.8 is the "integrated" database engine of LibreOffice. Its
documentation seems to be gone by now.
