When in Calc, be sure the date fields are actually defined as DATE type
and YYYY-MM-DD format before copy/paste.
Hope this helps.

Using LibreOffice Base v6..4.2.2 on Linux Mint v20.0 Mate
I am trying to copy and paste a LibreOffice Calc file from that
program to Base. Here is what I have done so far.
Calc - created spreadsheet
A = ID (Default format)
B = Name (Default format)
C = Location (Default format)
D = Date - First (Format as DD MMM YYYY)
E = Date - Last (Format as DD MMM YYYY)
Created a database named Reactors and created fields:
ID Interger [INTEGER]
Name Text [VARCHAR]
Location Text [VARCHAR]
Gender Text [VARCHAR]
No. Number [NUMERIC]
Date - First Date [DATE]
Date - Last Date [DATE]
Opened spreadsheet and highlighted columns (as listed above)
(as a test I chose only Rows 1-6)
Chose Copy and navigated to Database and clicked to Paste
From Menu presented, chose Append data (the default option)
clicked Next and unticked ID
clicked Create and following error message was displayed
Warning. Wrong data type:java.lang.IllegalArgumentException.
Searched both Internet (in general) and LibreOffice website (in
particular) but found nothing to help.
Obviously I am doing something wrong but I am unable to find the
error.All help will be very welcome.
