Hi,

I'm completely new to openoffice and having trouble with date format on cells.
I defined a format cell with this settings:
- Category: Date
- Format: 1999-12-31
- Language: English (USA)

After having set a value, on 2*click/ or Edit cell, the format changes to the one defined by the Language.
I would like to block this behaviour. When i edit a cell, i want to use the YYYY-MM-DD format!
How can i do it ?

thks

Very weird but it looks to me like you can get around this by changing your language setting to English - Canada.

At least that's my impression from 5 minutes of fooling around , err, I mean testing.

It looks like you may have found a bug.
