Screenshot of the problem in Excel 2013 and Calc 5.4 side by side
Calc displays the cells containing the last modification date with a different formatting.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a SharePoint directory in Internet Explorer.
2. Export the directory list into Excel.
3. Open and process the .igy file with Calc.
4. Save the sheet into .ods format. (see attachment #141517 [details] )
5. Open and process the .igy file with Excel.
6. Save the sheet into .xlsx format. (see attachment #141516 [details] )
Excel shows the date cells with Custom formatting: YYYY.MM.NN H:MM
Calc shows the date cells with Date formatting: YY-MM-DD HH:MM
This might be related to the Hungarian locale on Win 8.1.
The date format in Calc matches the one in Excel.
There is *no* formatting in the SharePoint List XML. So I am not sure we should try to mimic the representation of plain date decided by Excel.
Or is there a specification somewhere maybe?

Could you please try to reproduce it with a master build from http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/ ?
You can install it alongside the standard version.
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the master build

Imported igy file in LO 6.2 and Excel 2013
Tested with current bibisect-win32-6.2 with en_US locale.
The date formats are still different.
Excel with hu_HU UI and hu_HU locale on Win 8.1: yyyy.mm.dd h:mm
Calc 6.1 with hu_HU UI and hu_HU locale: YY-MM-DD HH:MM
Calc 6.2 with en_US UI and hu_HU locale: YY-MM-DD HH:MM
Would it be possible to make this use at least some locale-dependent default?
I understand that Excel is doing some educated guesswork, perhaps we could do something similar?

YY-MM-DD HH:MM *is* the default date+time format in the hu-HU locale.
Check with entering =NOW() in a General/Standard formatted cell.

Why does Excel display it in a yyyy.mm.dd h:mm format?
