Hi, I got a simple solution to this. My date format in excel sheet was like

Excel was not recognizing it as date or Formatting cell to Date was helping

So I selected and Copied entire column of date to New Blank Word document.

  Then I Again copied the date column from word document and came back to my
original excel sheet.

Then right click and press Pest Special -->Paste as TEXT.

Done. Now Excel will recognize it as date and will allow you to format cells
any date format as you wish. 

This __happens__ to work for you. What does "12-04-2015" actually mean?
On my system this will be interpreted as 12th of April. People with US
locale will get a date value referring to the 4th of December.

Then right click and press Pest Special -->Paste as TEXT.

When you paste-special unformatted text into LibreOffie Calc you will
get the text import dialog. There you need to choose the right locale
(any non-USA in this particular case) and you need to check the "special
numbers" option. Otherwise you will get text values again.

Your MS Office may be "easier" BUT if the origin of the text data
differs from the office locale it may import wrong data again and again.
