Saving a spreadsheet in Excel format (xls or xlsx) dates (20.09.17) are formated chinese (taiwan) 09.20.17.
I have checked the Version 188.8.131.52 in Linux /Ubuntu 16.04 and Windows 7 Pro
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a new spreadsheet with libre office calc
2. enter a date where the day is bigger thean 12 (20.09.17)
and formata as date german (deutschland)
3. save the spreadsheed as exclefile xls or xlsx
4. open the file with excel than the date-format has changed 09.20.17
5. if you check the formating you see chinese (taiwan)
User Profile Reset: Other colleagues has reproduced this bug as well
This bug doesn't exit for Libreoffice 5.3 and only for 184.108.40.206
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:55.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/55.0
Seems it lose the language for date format, in my case it returns to my default Spanish.
Version: 220.127.116.11 (x64)
Build ID: ea7cb86e6eeb2bf3a5af73a8f7777ac570321527
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 6.19; UI render: default;
Locale: es-ES (es_ES); Calc: group
Same thing here.
French locale, and dates are shown in English Caribean locale when opening files saved with LO (5.4.1 or 5.4.2, Windows 7 pro X64 and MacOSX 11) in Microsoft Excel.
For me importance should have been major, as we cannot exchange files containing dates with Microsoft Excel users.
