A LibO spreadsheet, made in LibO, Dutch version (no Excel or OOo past).
- In LibO 3.5.5, I used to give in dates as 20-7 and they were shown
as 20 Jul 12.
- In LibO 184.108.40.206, if I enter 20-7, 20-7 is shown in the cell.
If I enter 20-7-12, the date is inverted into 12 Jul 2020.
So instead of entering 20-7, I now need to enter 12-7-20 to get the
desired notation 20 Jul 12.
Is this a new feature, or a bug?
This is just another anti-feature that has been added to Calc against
all reason simply because too many inexperienced users who never really
used any spreadsheets insisted loudly enough.
I will upgrade my LibreOffice 3.5 to ApacheOpenOffice 3.4.1.
I resent the US way of ISO 8601. We Dutch and other Europeans use the
more logical sequence of day-month-year instead of the illogical
year-month-day.(most important first, least important last: very often the
year can be missed).
