Description igorbv 2017-11-23 10:03:57 UTC
Format of date changes while reading previously saved file from Calc in MS Excel. Default format in regional settings of Windows is DD/MM/YYYY, I created an empty file with date 25.12.2017 and saved it in xls format. Now when I open it in MS Excel 2013 I see this date in MM/DD/YYYY format - 12.25.2017.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Save any date field with date 25.12.2017 or same and format DD/MM/YY or DD/MM/YYYY in Calc to .xls/.xlsx file
2.Open it in Excel 2013 (2010 results are the same)

Actual Results:  
In table there will be 12.25.2017 (MM/DD/YYYY) and correct 25.12.2017 in editing field

Expected Results:
Correct 25.12.2017 date everywhere

Reproducible: Always
