I am thinking the cell is formated to a date format.
That number 0 is referenced to 1899-12-30, so when changed to dates 0 to
33 show these numbers. Interestingly, excel uses a simpler date, but last
time I checked it didn't work with negative numbers, but calc does??

0       1899-12-30
1       1899-12-31
2       1900-01-01
3       1900-01-02
31      1900-01-30
32      1900-01-31
33      1900-02-01

Wonderful. And HOW do I tell Calc (AND remember that setting!) that entering simply "33" in a cell is NOT a date??? As I said: I tried to set numbers to standard and date to "1999/01/10" format.
The page style I tried to create allows ONLY one OR the other ...

I do not understand, why it has to convert all those simple numbers to dates.
