No, this won't work. You've got to change the global locale option in
order to change the evaluation context for existing data.
Other method: =DATE(RIGHT(A1,4),MID(A1,4,2),LEFT(A1,2))
Do you have the used date pattern defined? Look at (menu) - Tools -
Language Settings - Languages at "Date acceptance patterns".
OK, I installed the latest LibreOffice and tested
=VALUE("20-03-1999") => Err:502 (invalid argument)
Then I added date pattern D-M-Y which did not change anything.
The one and only relevant setting for the conversion of already existing
text is the global application locale above "date acceptance patterns"
in the language options.
